(This amendment provides $1.6 million the first year and $2.2 million the second year from the general fund and 18 positions pursuant to House Bill 1014 which adds Harrisonburg and Rockingham County to the list of localities approved for a public defender office. Amounts include $1,877,293 for personnel costs and an additional $297,048 for ongoing office operational support. A companion amendment reduces general fund appropriation for the Criminal Fund in an amount estimated to account for reduced payments to court-appointed representation after the opening of the additional location proposed by this bill.)
