(This amendment provides $25,000 the first year from the general fund to the Virginia Foundation for Agriculture in the Classroom (AITC), which is located in Richmond. The AITC is a statewide program for teachers with an agriculture and natural resource theme. The goal of the AITC program is to provide Virginia students, through their classroom teachers, with a basic knowledge of agriculture so they will have a better understanding of Virginia's top industry and its impact on the economy, the environment, the landscape, and the world. The workshops and materials are SOL-based and are provided free of charge to teachers.)
