"P. Out of the amounts provided for Tourist Promotion, $85,500 the first year and $70,965 the second year from the general fund shall be provided to the cooperative advertising program operated by the Outdoor Advertising Association of Virginia. The Outdoor Advertising Association of Virginia shall provide a total of at least $256,500 in advertising value the first year and $212,895 the second year to promote tourism in Virginia."

(This amendment restores funding of $85,500 in the first year and $70,965 in the second year for outdoor advertising for tourism promotion, to be matched by in-kind support of at least $256,500 each year from the Outdoor Advertising Association. The funds will come from existing Tourist Promotion funds.)
