General Assembly approves budget amendment on Local Fines and Fees

May 2, 2016

GeneralAssembly

The General Assembly reconvened on April 20 to consider Governor Terry McAuliffe’s budget amendment package to adjust HB 30 for FY 2017-2018. Out of the Governor’s 30 budget amendments, the General Assembly approved 16.

The General Assembly passed Governor McAuliffe’s Budget Amendment 29 that eliminates the state seizure of locally collected fines and fees, one of VACo’s top priorities. Beginning in FY 2017, all fines and fees will stay with the locality where they are collected.

VACo thanks its members for your work contacting delegates and senators to support this amendment.
