“D.  Notwithstanding the provisions of § 10.1-1422.3, Code of Virginia, $2,330,000 the first 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, Code of Virginia, at the Director’s discretion and only as available after funding other land protection and water programs.  It is the intent of the General Assembly that legislation be considered by the 2013 Session to permanently eliminate the fee.”

(This amendment provides for the use of waste tire fee proceeds in the first year to offset general funds supporting DEQ environmental programs. In the second year, the appropriation for the waste tire fee is eliminated.)
