"D.  Out of this item, $50,000 the second year from the general fund shall be transferred to Henrico County for the construction of a handicapped-accessible fishing pier on county-owned property adjacent to the Osborne Boat Landing on Old Osborne Turnpike.  This appropriation is contingent upon Henrico County providing matching funds of at least $16,600 for the project."

(This amendment provides general fund support for a fishing pier designed to accommodate the needs of handicapped anglers. There is no public, safe access for these Virginians to use for fishing along the James River below the fall line.)
