(This amendment restores $1.0 million from the general fund each year to eliminate any waiting list for the AIDS Drug Assistance Program or ADAP. HIV/AIDS medications are now widely accepted as a primary method of prevention in the spread of the HIV virus, as well as an effective treatment for persons living with HIV. More than 1,000 Virginians have applied and are on the waiting list for ADAP assistance.)
