Page 119, line 32, strike "$41,249,648" and insert "$41,790,648".
Page 123, after line 26, insert:
"V.  Out of the amounts for State Education services for Vocational Education, $541,000 the second year from the general fund is provided to support the state's skills centers."

(This amendment provides general funds to support the state's three skills centers. The centers lost their federal Job Training Partnership Act (JTPA) funding for the 2000-01 school year, but were funded this year through the federal Workforce Investment Act (WIA) administered by the Virginia Employment Commission. The Commission has indicated that federal WTA funding is insufficient to support the centers next year.)
