(This amendment restores $1.6 million from the general fund the second year for prescription medications and health services provided through Virginia's free clinics that was reduced by 50 percent in the introduced budget. Without a restoration of funding, health services for uninsured Virginians, which has increased significantly during the economic recession, will be reduced. On average, free clinics provide $6 in health care for every $1 in state funding.)
