"K.  Out of the amounts for Tourist Promotion shall be provided $50,000 the second year from the Cooperative Advertising Grant Program to America's Aviation Adventure to promote aviation sites and attractions within the Commonwealth as part of an integrated effort to leverage tourism associated with the 2003 centennial of the Wright Brothers first flight and the opening of the National Air and Space Center Annex, notwithstanding the provisions of section 2.1-548.60, Code of Virginia.  The grant from the Cooperative Advertising Program must be matched on a dollar-for-dollar basis."

(This amendment authorizes the Virginia Tourism Authority to participate in a matching grant project to promote a network of Virginia's aviation-related sites and attractions.)
