"E.  The Commissioner of the Department of Health shall issue a certificate of public need approving an application for up to a fifty percent increase in the number of licensed nursing home beds for each nursing home that has reported to Virginia Health Information an average annual occupancy rate of 99.0% or higher for fiscal years 2006 and 2007, provided the application is filed on or before December 1, 2008 and the approved additional nursing home beds are not operational prior to July 1, 2009."
