"E.  The Secretary of Finance, with the assistance of the Secretary of Education, shall develop recommendations for the establishment of an ongoing financing program for the acquisition and replacement of educational exhibits at museums or cultural agencies wholly owned and operated by the Commonwealth.  The program, patterned after the Higher Education Equipment Trust Fund, may employ the Virginia Public Building Authority or other such funding mechanism as may be appropriate.   The Secretary shall report his recommendations to the chairmen of the Senate Finance and House Appropriations Committees by September 1, 2001."

(This amendment directs the Secretary of Finance to develop a program for the renewal and replacement of educational exhibits for the Science Museum of Virginia, Virginia Museum of Fine Arts, Jamestown-Yorktown Foundation, and other cultural agencies of the Commonwealth. Currently, institutions of higher education have such a program for the replacement of equipment through the Virginia College Building Authority's Higher Education Equipment Trust Fund.)
