"Out of the amounts for Financial Assistance for Cultural and Artistic Affairs, $175,000 the first year from the general fund is provided to New Point Lighthouse Preservation Task Force."

(This amendment provides a $175,000 general fund in the first year to the New Point Lighthouse Preservation Task Force representing the state's matching share of the costs of an Army Corps of Engineers study to examine whether dredge materials can be used to enlarge the land area of New Point Island. Without stabilization of the surrounding island shoreline, this lighthouse, which is listed on both the Virginia and National Historic Registers, may be destroyed. The New Point Lighthouse Preservation Task Force is joint venture between Mathews County and the Department of Conservation and Recreation.)
