Proposed state cuts concerned sheriffs in Grayson, Carroll

Virginia sheriffs applauded Gov. Bob McDonnell’s recent action to address the public safety shortfall in the state sheriffs’ budget by proposing an amendment to the General Assembly to provide an additional $6.5 million.
Earlier this month, the Virginia Sheriffs’ Association was concerned that 376 deputy sheriffs would have to be laid off in the proposed budget.
There was a $13.4 million shortfall in the year beginning July 1, 2011. McDonnell addressed the concern by submitting an amendment for $6.5 million.
