"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 Virginia War Museum."

(This amendment provides $100,000 the second year to the Virginia War Museum. The War Museum's entrance is severely in need of extensive repairs to provide visitors access, increase visibility to bring in more tourists and to make some desperately needed structural repairs. The museum is internationally recognized for its collection as well as its original materials.)
