Education: Higher Education
University of Virginia's College At Wise FY2007 $0 FY2008 $24,578 GF

Page 214, line 27, strike "$22,252,858" and insert "$22,277,436".
Page 215, after line 18, insert:
"E.  Out of this appropriation, $24,578 the second year from the general fund is provided to increase the average salary of nursing faculty by 10 percent, effective November 25, 2007.  This additional funding will help to attract and retain nursing faculty that are needed to address a shortage of nurses in the Commonwealth."

(This amendment provides funding to support a ten percent salary increase for nursing faculty at the University of Virginia's College at Wise as proposed for other schools with nursing faculty. The introduced budget inadvertently left out this institution in the list of schools recommended to receive funding for this purpose.)
