§ 2.2-2619.1. Commonwealth's Attorneys Training Fund established; administration.

A. There is hereby created in the state treasury a special nonreverting revolving fund to be known as the Commonwealth's Attorneys Training Fund, referred to in this section as "the Fund." The Fund shall be established on the books of the Comptroller.

B. The Fund shall consist of all proceeds distributed to the Commonwealth's Attorneys' Services Council in January 2014 as a result of the federal equitable sharing distribution following the settlement of United States v. Abbott Laboratories, Case No. 1:12-CR-00026 (W.D Va.)(Settlement). The Fund shall also consist of any moneys appropriated from the general fund, grants and donations received by the Council, and other moneys received by the State Treasurer and designated for deposit in the Fund. Interest and other income earned on the Fund shall be credited to the Fund. Any moneys remaining in the Fund, including interest and other income thereon, at the end of each fiscal year shall not revert to the general fund but shall remain in the Fund.

C. Notwithstanding any other provision of law, the moneys and other property comprising the Fund shall be invested, reinvested, and managed by the Board of the Virginia Retirement System as provided in § 51.1-124.37. The State Treasurer shall not be held liable for losses suffered by the Virginia Retirement System on investments made under the authority of this section.

D. The Fund shall be expended solely for the purpose of supporting prosecutor training and, as appropriate, law-enforcement training and associated costs approved by the Council and any other purpose permitted by this article that is consistent with the Settlement described in subsection B.

E. An amount not to exceed six percent of the moving average of the market value of the Fund calculated over the previous five years or since inception, whichever is shorter, on a one-year delayed basis, net of any administrative fee assessed pursuant to subsection E of § 51.1-124.37, may be expended in a calendar year for any purpose permitted by this article. The Council shall not be required to expend such amount in a calendar year, and any amount up to such six percent that is not expended in a calendar year may be expended in any other calendar year.

F. The disbursement of moneys from the Fund shall be made by the State Comptroller at the written request of the Council.
