"The appropriation of general fund amounts the second year shall be divided between the three poison control centers in proportion to the Virginia population served by the centers."

(This amendment adds $2.0 million the second year from the general fund to restore funding to operate the current three poison control centers serving Virginia operated by the University of Virginia, Virginia Commonwealth University and the National Capital Poison Center. Chapter 3, 2012 Special Session 1, Virginia Acts of Assembly provides $500,000 from the general fund in the first year only for the operation of two poison control centers instead of three. This funding would ensure the continued statewide operation of the poison control services for the Commonwealth. Funding shall be provided from the unappropriated balance of this act.)
