"Out of the amounts for Financial Assistance for Cultural and Artistic Affairs, $100,000 the second year from the general fund is provided to the Metro Richmond Sports Backers."

(This amendment provides $100,000 from the general fund in the second year to the Metro Richmond Sports Backers. The "game plan" of the organization is to attract events that produce economic benefit though tourism activity, improve quality of life for local residents, and highlight Richmond and the surrounding region to the national audience. The funding would support events such as NCAA Division I Women's Volleyball Championship, the X-Game Trials, the International Team Gymnastics Championship, the Richmond Marathon, and the Monument Avenume 10K Run.)
