Item 3-1.01 #2h

Interfund Transfers

Page 554, line 53, strike "$418,100" and "$418,100" and insert:
"$68,324" and "$68,324".
Page 556, after line 49, insert:
"MM.  On or before June 30, 2005, and June 30, 2006, the State Comptroller shall transfer to the general fund $349,776 the first year and $349,776 the second year, which represent the statewide and regional educational grants previously made from the Litter Control and Recycling Fund.  It is the intent of the General Assembly that following June 30, 2006, these funds shall be reinstated for the purposes included in § 10.1-1422.01, Code of Virginia."

(This amendment expresses an intent to eliminate a transfer of proceeds from the Litter Control and Recycling Fund to the general fund following the conclusion of this biennium. Absent the transfer of these proceeds to the general fund, the proceeds would have been used by the Department of Environmental Quality to award grants on a competitive basis to localities and other organizations interested in establishing either statewide or regional litter control and recycling educational programs.)
