"Out of the amounts for Financial Assistance for Cultural and Artistic Affairs, $50,000 the second year from the general fund is provided to the Blue Ridge Zoological Society of Virginia."

(This amendment provides $50,000 from the general fund in the second year for the Blue Ridge Zoological Society of Virginia. The request is to support educational programs. These programs included Zoo Camp, school presentations, and on-grounds amphitheater programs. The society is in the process of establishing sufficient local funding for the development of new and improved zoo facilities. The society reports that once that facility is in place, state general fund support will no longer be necessary.)
