Page 254, after line 35, insert:
"S. Under Item 398 of Chapter 1042, 2003 Acts of Assembly, on page 413, language beginning with "It is the intent of the General Assembly" and ending with "Code of Virginia." is nullified."

(This amendment prevents the Virginia Marine Resources Commission from collecting encroachment royalties. There has been a moratorium on collection of these royalties since 1988. These royalties are paid for the use of state-owned bottomlands for the construction of piers and other structures.)
