(This amendment provides funding to ensure that Virginia will maintain a robust and uninterrupted program to test poultry for avian influenza (AI). These amounts will cover the costs of testing a portion of Virginia poultry prior to movement to slaughter using both FluDetect and PCR testing to provide earlier detection and response to avoid a widespread outbreak of AI.)
