Page 318, line 16, strike "$41,238,412" and insert "$40,822,666".
Page 319, after line 7, insert:
"G.  Out of the amounts appropriated for Water Protection Planning and Policy, $442,422 the first year is provided from the general fund to improve the modeling of groundwater resources in critical management areas.  Based upon the results of that modeling and an evaluation of the model's applicability to actual resource availability, funding may be provided during fiscal year 2008 for additional permit review and inspection."

(This amendment eliminates second year funding for the ground water supply monitoring program created in the introduced budget. The funding may be applied for next year if the data developed during the first year indicate a significant enough issue with ground water supplies in Southside Virginia and along the Eastern Shore.)
