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, in fiscal year 1999 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 Appropriation Act that was omitted in the introduced Budget Bill and provides an additional $4,680 in general funds the first year to assist in matching federal and local funds for specific flood hazard mitigation projects.)
