(This amendment provides operational funding critical to the Virginia Coalfield Regional Tourism Development Authority, which develops, markets and promotes tourism-related efforts throughout the seven coalfield counties in Southwest Virginia including Buchanan, Dickenson, Lee, Russell, Scott, Tazewell, Wise and the City of Norton. The tourism authority is in its 20th year and is working hard to market the region aggressively to showcase the vast amount of natural and historical resources it has to offer. This funding will allow the Authority to continue its mission to develop, market and expand the region as a whole. This organization is vital to the sustainability of the region's tourism-related industries.)
