(This amendment restores funding for operations and 15 wage positions for False Cape, Sky Meadows, Southwest Virginia Museum and Caledon State Parks and the operation of the campground at Clinch Mountain Wildlife Management Area. These parks' hours of operation were substantially reduced in House Bill 1400, as introduced. This amendment will allow these parks to reopen on their previous schedules. The amendment restores an additional portion of the total cuts proposed to statewide park operations. House Bill 1400, as introduced, reduced general fund support for state parks by $1.8 million the first year and $2.4 million the second year.)
