"J.  The Virginia Community College System is authorized to charge community college students a technology fee pursuant to §4-2.01c. of this act.  The fee may be determined on a credit hour basis.  Revenues collected from the fee shall not exceed $3,000,000 in the first year and $3,000,000 in the second year."

(This amendment restores to the Virginia Community College System a special fee to help finance the system's technology plan. The fee had been deleted in House Bill 30, as introduced. The fee authorized in this amendment would approximate $40 a year per FTE student, or about $1.40 per credit hour.)
