Page 430, after line 19, insert:
"T.  The Governor is hereby authorized to transfer up to $267,000 from unrestricted and unreserved agency balances at the end of fiscal year 1999 to the Tuition Assistance Grant appropriation in the State Council of Higher Education, should the students attending the Appalachian School of Law become eligible for Tuition Assistance Grants in the second year."

(This amendment provides a contingent appropriation for Tuition Assistance Grants for students attending the Appalachian School of Law. Currently, the students are ineligible for the grant because the recently established law school is undergoing accreditation review. Only students attending accredited independent institutions of higher education are eligible for TAG.)
