(This amendment will support marketing and advertising to promote America's 400th anniversary and to stimulate tourism activity in Virginia. In order to maximize state revenue opportunities tied to the international commemoration and statewide programs, additional investments are needed in key tourism markets during the 2007 travel season. Dollars will strengthen advertising and consumer promotions and public relations initiatives in fiscal years 2007 and 2008.)
