(This amendment eliminates $450,000 in proposed fee increases proposed for Virginia's state parks in the Governor's introduced budget and restores an equivalent amount in general fund support. Virginia has historically charged fees for cabin, campsites, and parking that are higher than the fees charged in surrounding states. In addition, the amendment includes $125,000 in additional general fund support to restore a portion of the seven state parks positions eliminated in the introduced budget. These positions were approved by the General Assembly during its 2011 Session.)
