(This amendment saves $379,550 each year from the general fund by providing level funding for the PALS assessment tests for pre-kindergarten to third grade. Three companion amendments 1) remove the $340,100 of new funding each year for three positions that would have administered the expansion of the Virginia Preschool Initiative (VPI) program; 2) save $9.1 million the first year and $8.1 million the second year from the general fund by removing the programmatic changes that were included in the introduced budget; and 3) remove the $10.6 million in new funding related to VPI in the Department of Social Services.)
