Page 82, line 18, strike "$38,521,190" and insert "$43,521,190".
Page 86, after line 54, insert:
"R. Out of the amounts for Community Development Services shall be provided $5,000,000 the first year from the general fund to pay the capital costs for three decentralized public sewage systems in the Lenowisco, Cumberland Plateau, or Mount Rogers planning districts.  The Department shall leverage the appropriation with other state moneys, federal grants or loans, local contributions, and private or nonprofit resources.  Any unexpended balance in the item for this purpose on June 30, 2007, shall not revert to the general fund but shall be carried forward, reappropriated and allotted."

(This amendment provides $5.0 million in the first year from the general fund for sewage system construction financing in PDCs 1, 2 and 3 as recommended in the Southwest Virginia Regional Wastewater Study. This funding would support three PPEA projects in this region to demonstrate the low-cost, low-maintenance and high-efficiency of decentralized sewer systems and would eliminate numerous "straight pipe" discharges of raw sewage directly into environmentally sensitive streams.)
