"Virginia Museum of Transportation    150,000     0".

(The amendment provides $150,000 the first year from the general fund to the Virginia Museum of Transportation. The museum is the Commonwealth’s official museum of transportation and wishes to continue to serve in that capacity but has grave concerns over their ability to function without this continued state funding. They would like to reinstitute their educational programming with current staff levels with the K-12 schools as well as pre-school as a means to further their mission of educating the populace about transportation, both historically and going forward.)
