(This amendment restores operational funding for the 47 Soil and Water Conservation Districts. The introduced budget proposed a 46 percent cut to SWCD operational funding. The SWCD support is critical to the implementation of Virginia's Watershed Improvement Plan for the Chesapeake Bay as well as the Southern Rivers TMDL. The districts provide the network to market and distribute the agricultural best management practices cost-share program with the agricultural community.)
