Page 300, line 19, strike "matching".
Page 300, line 22, after "fund.", insert:
"The amounts included for this purpose shall not be dependent upon the support provided to the Breaks Interstate Park by the Commonwealth of Kentucky."

(This amendment eliminates language that conditioned Virginia's support for the Breaks Interstate Park upon the total level of support provided by the Commonwealth of Kentucky. Currently, regardless how much general fund support Virginia may provide to the Breaks Interstate Park, the park cannot use the full amount of that appropriation unless Kentucky contributes an equal or greater amount. Because Kentucky provided less support to the park than Virginia in both fiscal year 2003 and fiscal year 2004, the Breaks Interstate Park was required to return $29,000 in support from Virginia each year.)
