"Out of the amounts for Financial Assistance for Cultural and Artistic Affairs, $125,000 the second year from the general fund is provided to the City of Newport News for Warwick Courthouse restoration."

(This amendment provides a general fund grant of $125,000 the second year for the Capital improvements to the old Warwick Courthouse. The 1884 Warwick Courthouse restoration is a part of an overall effort to revitalize the historic Warwick Courthouse Town Center into a focal point for local history preservation and related community activities. The 1810 and 1884 courthouses - paired together in the courthouse square - depict the evolution of Warwick County from a predominantly rural environment to an industrial and commercial urban center. Recent archeological efforts revealed footers for the clerk's office. Funds provided here will be put towards the reconstruction of the building.)
