(This amendment provides $50,000 from the general fund in the second year to Arts and Education In Concert (AEIC). AEIC works together with youth to stop drug abuse and violence. The students create, implement, and monitor their own programs that they feel will best influence their peer group to be drug free. AEIC has initiated an internet radio station for students to have a stronger voice. This new radio station program will provide an opportunity for all schools in Virginia to participate.)
