(This amendment provides $700,000 in fiscal year 2007 from the general fund to Confederate Memorial Literary Society to support the ongoing operations of the Museum of the Confederacy and the White House of the Confederacy. The majority of this grant would be used to cover the museum's current operating deficit, which has been attributed to reductions in the number of visitors to the museum. The museum has reported that this decline in visitorship is the result of the Virginia Commonwealth University Health System Authority's medical center expansion. The grant is designed to ensure the museum's continued operation for an additional year while discussions continue about the possibility of moving the facility to a new location.)
