", except that donations or gifts to the Virginia War Memorial Foundation that are small in size and number and valued at less than $5,000, such as library items or small display items, may be approved by the Executive Director of the Virginia War Memorial in consultation with the Secretary of Veterans Affairs and Homeland Security.  All other gifts and donations to the Virginia War Memorial Foundation must receive written approval from the Secretary of Veterans Affairs and Homeland Security."


Explanation
(This amendment provides that gifts and donations made to the Virginia War Memorial that are valued at less than $5,000 be exempt from the requirement that the Governor approve all gifts, grants, and donations made to state agencies. The Executive Director must consult with the Secretary of Veterans Affairs and Homeland Security about the acceptance of these gifts and donations. A number of private individuals are donating uniforms, flags, and other items from their service in World War II to the Virginia War Memorial.)
