Page 262, after line 36, insert:
"D. Notwithstanding the provisions of §10.1-603.16 et. seq., Code of Virginia, it is the intent of the General Assembly that 75 percent of the funds deposited in the Virginia Flood Prevention and Protection Assistance Fund pursuant to §§38.2-137 and 38.2-401.1, Code of Virginia, be used for the non-federal share of flood hazard mitigation projects as determined by the Department of Emergency Services."

(This amendment reinstates language from the current Appropriations Act that was omitted in House Bill 30 and provides an additional $4,680 general fund the first year to assist in matching federal and local funds for specific flood hazard mitigation projects.)
