(This amendment eliminates a proposed transfer of the Enhanced E-911 program from VITA to the Department of Emergency Management as contained in the introduced budget and is a companion to an amendment restoring this program within VITA. Information provided as part of the introduced budget reports that efficiencies will result from reasssigning the E-911 program to an agency responsible for emergency management. However, the program as currently constituted is recognized as among the best E-911 programs in the nation. Further, VITA was in the process of modernizing Virginia's E-911 program prior to this proposed transfer. Much of the equipment for E-911 service is becoming outdated. The funding for modernization remains within VITA.)
