"R. Out of the amounts for Tourist Promotion shall be provided $2,000,000 the second year from the general fund to complete preparations for the security and staging of the 2007 Observance at Historic Jamestowne.  These funds shall be used for the required re-internment of the early settlers' human remains and installation of the Memorial Monument, completion of interpretive and visitor site improvements, and completion of renovated Dale House to house a visitors services station and museum store."
