"B. The Virginia Museum of Natural History shall review the feasibility of funding operating positions, including development activities, through increased grants and other voluntary contributions from the public and private sectors, or through cooperative arrangements with other organizations. The review shall address the operating needs of the new museum building in Martinsville. Copies of the review shall be provided to the Chairmen of the House Appropriations and Senate Finance Committees no later than November 30, 2004.".

(This amendment requires the Virginia Museum of Natural History to study the feasibility of supporting more of its operating costs with grants and donations. As the new museum facility begins operations, there will be increased needs for funding from non-state sources.)
