"B.  The amounts for this item includes $200,000 from the general fund in the second year to continue to support the treatment and control of hydrilla on Lake Gaston."

(This amendment provides $200,000 from the general fund in fiscal year 2014 for the eradication of hydrilla in Lake Gaston, located in the counties of Brunswick and Mecklenburg. The wide spread of the hydrilla growth has affected tourism and recreation, especially water sports, fishing and boating in Southside Virginia's most prestigious lakes. Local governments are contributing; however, more treatments are required due to the steady growth over the last five years.)
