(This amendment provides $750,000 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.)
