(This amendment eliminates unnecessary language citing Code of Virginia provisions for distributing the $4-for-Life funding for emergency medical services. New statutory language was passed by the 2004 General Assembly which realigned the funding formula guiding the distribution of the $4-for-Life funding. However, the new distribution formula was contingent upon receipt of the full amount of $4-for-Life funding which will occur beginning July 1, 2007. The implementation of the new formula makes the current language in the budget related to this distribution obsolete. In addition, language is added to clarify that funding provided to the Department of State Police for med-flight operations will be provided from the Rescue Squad Assistance Fund, thereby ensuring that the new funding formula adopted for $4-for-Life will be effective on July 1, 2007.)
