Page 188, after line 30, insert:
"K. 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 $195,000 the first year and $238,750 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
Center for Organizational and Technological Advancement (100,000) (125,000)
Virginia Water Resources Center (12,500) (31,250)
Center for Applied Math (30,000) (30,000)
Virginia Writing Program (30,000) (30,000)
Center for Coal and Energy Research (17,500) (17,500)
Reynolds Homestead Continuing Education (5,000) (5,000)".

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