“D.  Notwithstanding the provisions of § 10.1-1422.3, Code of Virginia, $2,330,000 the first year and $2,330,000 the second year from the Waste Tire Trust Fund within the Department of Environmental Quality shall be used for the costs associated with the Department’s land protection and water programs.  Such funds may be used for the purposes set forth in § 10.1-1422.3 of the Virginia Code at the Director’s discretion and only as available after funding other land protection and water programs.”

(This amendment provides for the use of Waste Tire Funds to offset general funds to support DEQ environmental programs. A companion amendment to Item 447 eliminates the proposed transfer of these funds to VDOT for highway maintenance.)
