Page 193, line 33, strike "$4,050,153" and insert "$5,326,049".

(This amendment adds $1.3 million GF to provide a partial restoration of funds that have been cut since 2008 for grants to arts organizations. The Commonwealth's goal for arts grants funding, adopted by the General Assembly in 1987 and continued in successive Appropriation Acts, is $1.00 per Virginia resident. Prior to this additional funding, the appropriation in the budget as introduced equates to about $0.43 per capita.)
