Page 153, after line 19, insert:
"I. It is the intent of the Governor and the General Assembly that direct general fund support of special purpose research and public service centers and projects in higher education not be continued indefinitely and that institutions of higher education secure nongeneral fund support of such activities.  General fund reductions of $171,250 the first year and $171,250 the second year from research and public service activities shown below reflect the expectation that additional private and other nongeneral funds be solicited to augment nongeneral fund support:
Center Name FY 2003 FY 2004
School of Law Special Funding (100,000) (100,000)
Center for Conflict Resolution (41,250) (41,250)
Virginia Writing Program (30,000) (30,000)".

(This amendment reduces general funds for special purpose research centers in anticipation of nongeneral sources replacing the funds.)
