"Out of the amounts for Financial Assistance for Cultural and Artistic Affairs, $100,000 the first year for the Arts and Education In Concert program."

(This amendment provides $100,000 the first year to the Arts and Education In Concert (AEIC) program to work with youth to stop drug abuse and violence. The program now reaches over 80,000 students in the Northern Virginia area. 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 these students to have a stronger voice in communicating their message. This new radio station program will provide an opportunity for all schools in Virginia to participate.)
