(This amendment eliminates an appropriation of $351,510 and three positions from the general fund in the second year that was included in the introduced budget to support groundwater supply research. This initiative was a component of a larger water supply planning program. The applicable section of the Code of Virginia establishing the requirement for water supply planning stated that a "comprehensive water supply planning process," including criteria and guidelines, was to have been developed by the State Water Control Board with assistance from the Commissioner of Health, localities, public service authorities, and other interested parties. Currently, such a process has not been developed.)
