Page 85, strike lines 19 through 26 and insert:
"C.  Education for Independence programs previously funded through the 1990 Carl D. Perkins Vocational Education and Applied Technology Act and through Social Services Block Grants or other available federal funds shall be funded and supported through the Workforce Investment Act and the One-Stop Career System."

(This amendment restores legislative intent to continue the spending authorization for services provided by the Education for Independence programs. Under the Workforce Investment Act, VEC is responsible for these special programs through the Virginia Workforce Council.)
