Page 286, after line 27, insert:
"C.  Notwithstanding any other provisions of policy or regulation, Eastern State Hospital is authorized to continue the current agreement with Williamsburg-James City County Public Schools to lease facility space for the Alternative School through June 30, 2008, in accordance with the terms and conditions of the contract in effect from July 1, 2005, to June 30, 2006."

(This amendment allows Eastern State Hospital to continue its current agreement to lease space at the facility to Williamsburg-James City County Public Schools for its Alternative School. The Alternative School occupies about 12,000 square feet of space in an area that is not being used by the Hospital. The current agreement provides for the payment of the cost of utilities and refuse services. More recent state policy requires state agencies to make vacant space available to other state agencies as a first priority and, if leasing space, to obtain a fair market lease value for the space. The Alternative School will need to be relocated once Eastern State Hospital begins construction to rebuild the facility. This language would allow the school to continue its current lease until the school is able to find an alternative location and/or Eastern State Hospital begins rebuilding its existing facility.)
