Summary as introduced:
Technology Trust Fund Fee. Authorizes the Virginia Information Technologies Agency to impose a civil penalty of up to $1,000 upon any circuit court clerk who provides remote access to land records through any means without a written certification of compatibility. The clerk shall be personally liable for any civil penalty imposed. The bill also prohibits any funds from being released from the Technology Trust Fund by the Compensation Board to any circuit court clerk or credited to any locality until the Board receives the written certification of compatibility. Any person whose property or person is injured by the release of any personal identifying information by any circuit court clerk who fails to receive the written certification of compatibility and who releases through a website established under the auspices of the clerk's office, a locality or a private provider may sue and recover for any damages sustained and the costs of suit. A claim of governmental immunity shall not be a defense to a suit under this section.
