CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. State legislators voted to increase a fee felons have to pay, to help put more money to supporting the Internet Crimes Against Children Fund.

The measure didn't pass during the General Assembly’s regular session, despite the Senate passing the legislation. Governor Terry McAuliffe revived the legislation this month when he introduced a Governor's amendment, restoring the fee increase.
