(This amendment provides $225,000 the second year from the general fund to the Virginia Living Museum to support its ongoing environmental, life, and earth science programs. During its 2001-02 fiscal year, the Virginia Living Museum provided hands-on educational programs to more than 70,000 school children at its facility in Newport News and more than 52,000 additional school children through community outreach programs in public schools. These community outreach programs with Virginia public schools have been cited as a model for museum-school collaboration by the National Science Foundation, the U.S. Department of Education, the Institute of Museum and Library Services, and the Virginia Department of Education.)
