Page 66, after line 53, insert:
"D.  Out of the amounts provided for Election Operations, $200,000 the first year from the general fund is provided for the costs of newspaper advertising and the printing of brochures and polling place posters for a referendum, as required by §§ 30-19.9 and 30-19.10, Code of Virginia, to consider a constitutional amendment expanding the list of succession to the Office of the Governor."

(This amendment provides additional general fund support to the State Board of Elections to cover the costs of newspaper advertising, the printing of brochures, and development of polling place posters necessitated by the referendum required for the implementation of a constitutional amendment. The constitutional amendment to be supported by these general dollars provides for the expansion of the list of successors to the Office of the Governor should an emergency or enemy attack prevent the House of Delegates from convening to select a new governor.)
