(This amendment removes the increase in funding provided to start a third industry-focused research center. The General Assembly authorized the start-up of two centers in the 2006 Session but rejected a proposal to fund four centers prior to evaluating the success of the two initial centers. Insufficient time has elapsed to evaluate the success of this new initiative prior to consideration of expansion.)
