(This amendment provides a general fund appropriation of $55,000 to the Mathews Maritime Foundation for the purchase of one of the last surviving deck boats built by a local Matthews County shipyard. At one time, Mathews County was the home of a number of small family-owned shipyards. The foundation plans to use this deck boat, named the "Ellen Marie," as a means to educate local citizens about the history of the county and to increase tourism.)
