Page 288, line 24, strike "$5,226,490" and insert "$6,426,490".

(This amendment provides $1.2 million from the general fund in the second year to the comprehensive Health Investment Project (CHIP) of Virginia. Since fiscal year 2001, general fund support for CHIP of Virginia has been reduced and a portion of it has been replaced with federal Temporary Assistance to Needy Families Funding. The reduction of general fund dollars has resulted in the loss of other federal matching dollars, resulting in a waiting list of more than 400 children statewide for CHIP services. The additional funding would also allow for the expansion of services into three underserved localities.)
