(This amendment adds language restoring the percentage of the Master Settlement Agreement with tobacco product manufacturers which is allocated to the Virginia Tobacco Settlement Fund to 10 percent. The introduced budget had reduced the allocation to 8.5 percent and transferred that amount into the Virginia Health Care Fund to offset the general fund cost of children's health insurance provided through the Family Access to Medical Insurance Security (FAMIS) program. Companion amendments in Item 296 and Item 297 reverse this action in the FAMIS and Medicaid budgets.)
