"B.  Out of the amounts appropriated for this item, $200,000 the second year from the general fund shall be provided to the Lake Gaston Weed Control Council to match amounts provided by the state of North Carolina and the City of Virginia Beach to control noxious weeds on Lake Gaston."

(This amendment provides a state match to North Carolina's $200,000 and Virginia Beach's $225,570 to control Hydrilla on Lake Gaston. This invasive plant species interferes with recreation, destroys fish and wildlife habitats, and can severely degrade water delivery systems.)
