Page 139, after line 15, insert:
"2. a) Students qualifying under this provision shall be eligible for the waiver of nonresident tuition and fee charges for one year from the actual reporting date shown on military orders.
b) Such students shall continue to be eligible for the waiver of nonresident tuition and fee charges so long as either they or the nonresident parents claiming them as a dependent for federal or state income tax purposes are employed full time in Virginia, paying Virginia income taxes on all taxable income earned in this Commonwealth and the students are claimed as a dependent for Virginia and federal income tax purposes."

(This amendment adds language clarifying the provision in the introduced budget to provide in-state tuition rates to dependents of military personnel stationed in Virginia. The additional language makes it clear that the one-year waiver on out-of-state tuition shall apply only for one year unless the student or a parent are paying income taxes in the Commonwealth of Virginia.)
