(This amendment restores $300,000 from the general fund the second year to the Virginia Statewide Area Health Education Centers (AHECs). General fund support for the AHECs was reduced by $650,000 each year in the 2003 Appropriations Act. AHECs assist with the recruitment and retention, practice support, and training of health care professionals in medically underserved areas or areas with medical underserved population.)
