(This amendment eliminates language in the introduced budget that made the additional funding for the Virginia Public Guardian and Conservator Program contingent upon the Governor's proposed tax plan and corrects a typographical error related to the second year funding for the initiative. The introduced budget added $110,000 the first year and $250,000 the second year to establish five new Public Guardian and Conservator Programs in unserved areas. Currently, nine programs operate throughout the state and serve elderly and disabled adults who have no family or friends able to provide guardian services. This is one of several amendments eliminating contingency language for Olmstead initiatives in order to ensure funding for the additional services.)
