Page 369, after line 3, insert:
"C. The Secretary of Natural Resources may consider an unsolicited proposal to develop a public-private educational and infrastructure facilities (PPEA) project associated with the Virginia Recreational Authority’s Explorer Park facilities.  Any such proposal shall conform to § 56-575.1 Et. Seq. of the Code of Virginia, and shall provide for a continuing interest in the facilities by the Commonwealth, and for enhanced educational and recreational opportunities to be provided by the non-state participants in the project.  The proposal shall be submitted to the Chairmen of the House Appropriations and Senate Finance Committees by October 1, 2003.  Nothing in this paragraph shall be construed as to obligate the Commonwealth to enter into any resulting PPEA project."

(This amendment permits the Secretary of Natural Resources to receive a PPEA project proposal from the County of Roanoke regarding Explorer Park, owned by the Virginia Recreational Facilities Authority. The PPEA is to ensure that the facilities will continue to provide educational services to the community.)
