(This amendment restores funding for the Virginia Statewide Area Health Education Centers (AHECs) that was reduced in fiscal year 2004 as part of budget reduction strategies. The AHECs assist with the recruitment and retention, practice support, and training of health care professionals in medically underserved areas or areas with medically underserved populations. Language in the introduced budget requires AHECs to match 100 percent of the funds received from the state for their activities.)
