"C.1 The Governor shall continue to work with the Executive Branch and Administrative Agencies to decrease the need for printed materials, particularly those well-suited for electronic distribution on the internet.

(This amendment assumes savings of $1.5 million over the biennium from reduced expenditures for printing reports throughout state government. A companion amendment within the Virginia Tourism Corporation redirects the $1.5 million savings to fund efforts to support event planning for the commemoration of the 150th anniversary of the Civil War which will promote tourism to the Commonwealth.)
