"2.  Out of the amounts appropriated for Financial Assistance to Soil and Water Conservation Districts, $386,500 the first year and $386,500 the second year from the general fund is provided to restore funding for Virginia's soil and water conservation districts to the levels approved by the 2007 Session of the General Assembly."

(This amendment provides $386,500 each year from the general fund to restore the Governor's October 2007 reductions to the level of support provided to Virginia's 47 soil and water conservation districts. This funding is used to support the districts' staffing, equipment, travel, rent, and utilities expenses. Soil and water conservation districts are the primary means through which Virginia's non-point source pollution control strategies are promoted within the farming community.)
