(This amendment adjusts general fund appropriation each year to account for reduced payments made from the Criminal Fund pursuant to House Bill 1014, which authorizes the establishment of a public defenders office for Harrisonburg and Rockingham. A companion amendment under the Indigent Defense Commission provides funding and positions for the new office location. The reductions assumed herein account for a phased-in first year for the new office and a minimal continued need for court-appointed attorneys due to public defender workloads and conflicts of interest.)
