(This amendment provides $660,500 each year from the general fund to Virginia's soil and water conservation districts to offset inflation and other factors that have reduced the effective level of support provided to these entities by the Commonwealth. The level of funding was based upon a funding formula first developed in 1999. Based on that formula, each of the 47 districts would receive an increase of $14,032 in their current level of support ($81,500). An additional $1,170 each year is included to provide funding for an additional locality now served by one of the districts.)
