(This amendment provides $1.0 million in the first year from the general fund for the Mid-Atlantic Regional Spaceport. These funds are needed to move overhead power lines to underground locations so that assembled launch vehicles can be moved from the assembly area to the launch pad. Currently, the vehicles are too tall to clear the overhead lines.)
