Page 266, line 28, strike "$36,653,917" and insert "$36,434,917".
Page 266, line 28, strike "$36,690,314" and insert "$36,471,314".
Page 266, strike lines 37 through 39, and insert:
"A.  Notwithstanding the provisions of § 58.1-3403, Code of Virginia, the Department of Forensic Science shall be exempt from the payment of service charges levied in lieu of taxes by any county, city, or town."

(This amendment eliminates the obligation for the payments in lieu of taxes by the Department of Forensic Science. Other public safety agencies, notably the Department of Corrections, have been provided similar exemptions. This reduction does not impact the operations of the agency and its ability to process analytical data.)
