(This amendment reduces the level of general fund support for the Virginia Outdoors Foundation by $950,000 each year. This amount was contained in Chapter 847, the Appropriation Act of 2007, as a one-time appropriation in the first year to assist the Virginia Outdoors Foundation with technology upgrades and other expenses. The Governor's introduced budget that year also contained this amount as a one-time expense. The Virginia Outdoors Foundation currently receives a $1.00 fee on each deed recorded in any locality in which the foundation holds an easement. These fees are estimated to produce $1.3 million each year for the Virginia Outdoors Foundation's operations. As more easements are recorded in more localities across Virginia, this fee revenue will increase as well.)
