Page 97, line 48, strike "$331,359,388" and insert "$332,859,388".
Page 99, line 38, after "1994.", insert:
"4.  This appropriation includes $1,500,000 the first year and $1,500,000 the second year from the general fund to increase the grant award to the 54 existing High Schools That Work sites from $7,500 to $15,000 per site, and to add 73 additional sites."

(This amendment would add general funds for the High Schools That Work program. Currently, Virginia has 54 sites. The budget, as introduced, assumes a grant amount of $7,500 per site, paid from federal Carl Perkins Act funds. The amendment would use general funds to increase the grant amount to $15,000 per site at a cost of $405,000 each year. The remaining funding would be used to expand the program to 73 new sites.)
