(This amendment provides additional general fund support for the Soil and Water Conservation Districts specifically for technical and administrative services provided by districts to communities statewide. These independent political subdivisions play an important role in nonpoint source pollution abatement efforts, including the Water Quality Improvement Act, the Virginia Agriculture Cost Share Program, the Agricultural Best Management Practices Tax Credit Program, and the Agricultural Stewardship Act. Existing language directs the Soil and Water Conservation Board to develop and adopt policies and instruct the Department to coordinate its spending with the Board's priorities.)
