"Out of the amounts for Financial Assistance for Cultural and Artistic Affairs, $25,000 the first year and $25,000 the second year from the general fund is provided to the Children's Museum of Virginia."

(This amendment provides a general fund grant of $25,000 each year to the Children's Museum of Virginia to expand its collaborative efforts with the Portsmouth Public School System. For the past three years, the Children's Museum of Virginia has worked with the school system's students on specific science-based SOL programs and produced workshops for Portsmouth Public School System teachers on ways to better teach physics. This amendment would provide general fund dollars to expand these services to include after-school programming for the six Portsmouth public schools designated by the Governor to participate in the Partnership for Achieving Successful Schools (PASS) program.)
