Page 593, after line 26, insert:  
"p.  Any public institution of higher education may supplement annual salaries for classified employees from private gifts, endowment funds, or income from endowments and gifts, subject to policies approved by the board of visitors.  The Commonwealth shall have no general fund obligations for the continuation of such salary supplements.".

(This amendment allows public colleges and universities to supplement salaries of classified employees with private funds. This language is the result of work by the joint subcommittee studying the relationship between the state and its public higher education institutions and is contingent upon the passage of Senate Bill 1327.)
