Page 85, after line 26, insert:
"D.  Unexpended funds appropriated by the General Assembly for the use of local Workforce Investment Boards and returned to the Commonwealth shall be reappropriated to the Virginia Community College System.  The reappropriated funds shall be allocated to the community colleges located in the Workforce Investment Areas where the funds were unspent.  The funds shall be used for high-priority education programs, including allied health professions, plumbing, tractor-trailer driver training, industrial maintenance, heavy equipment operator training, automotive technician training, industrial machinist training, and high-skills manufacturing.  The Commissioner of the Virginia Employment Commission and Chancellor of the Virginia Community College System shall report to the Chairmen of the House Appropriations and Senate Finance Committees by November 1 of each year on the amount and uses of any funds transferred to the Virginia Community College System."

(This amendment expresses legislative intent to require the transfer of unexpended and reverted Workforce Investment Act funds to the VCCS for high-priority education programs in the Workforce Investment Board districts where the funds were originally appropriated.)
