(This amendment provides funding to implement Senate Bill 176, which would establish the Public Library Internet Protection Fund. First year funds would be used to reimburse localities up to $50 per computer to purchase Internet filters for any public access computers that don't currently have them as well as to purchase necessary hardware up to $2,500 per library system, to network the filters. Second year funds would be to renew filter licenses that must be renewed annually. There are currently about 3,970 public access computers at local public libraries in Virginia.)
