(This amendment provides additional general fund support to the soil and water conservation districts to offset the loss of state operational support that was required to support the operating costs of the Big Sandy Soil and Water Conservation District, which is Virginia's newest soil and water conservation district. When this district was created, no state funds were supplied for its operational support. Consequently, this support was provided by using a share of the other soil and water conservation districts' support. State funds are used by districts to support local staff and basic operations and to deliver nonpoint source pollution control programs and educational programs to landowners and other citizens.)
