Page 86, after line 54, insert:
"R.  Out of the amounts for Community Development Services shall be provided $125,000 the first year from the general fund to the Southside Planning District Commission as a $1.00 for $1.00 match for contributions from local or private sources, or from the Tobacco Indemnification Commission, for the acquisition of a facility to house the offices of the planning district commission."

(This amendment provides $125,000 in the first year to the Southside Planning District Commission from the general fund to match other contributions to the construction of an expanded facility for the PDC. The Southside PDC serves an area with the state's highest unemployment. This amendment will assist in covering the costs of providing additional services such as the Lake Country Development Corporation (a lending agency for industrial projects) and Lake Country Marketing Council (a regional marketing group that attends trade shows and marketing missions with the state for industrial recruitment) in addition to its other responsibilities.)
