(This amendment provides $700,000 the first year from the general fund to the Science Museum of Western Virginia. The funds would support renovations of all of the Museum's galleries and develop new educational programs to focus on issues critical to Virginia: healthy living, environmental stewardship, and the improvement of science, technology, engineering and mathematics literacy. The Museum is developing three new galleries: Healthy Bodies, Healthy Earth, and How It Works, plus a Preschool Discovery Room.)
