(This amendment provides $1,000,000 the second year from the general fund to America's Shakespeare Campus Proposal. The funding would be used to augment a $25 million public capital campaign aimed at constructing, in Staunton, an authentic recreation of the 1614 Globe playhouse where Shakespeare’s works were initially produced. By 2014, this project will expand to include public education buildings and an operational program to attract students - and the worldwide corps of dedicated William Shakespeare fans - to Virginia.)
