(This amendment provides $1.5 million the first year from the general fund to Thomas Jefferson's Poplar Forest. The funds will be used for land acquisition and preservation for the property for continued public use. Financial support from the state is essential to sustaining the work to build Poplar Forest into a major national tourist attraction and cultural landmark on a par with Monticello.)
