Page 256, line 42, strike "$12,497,162" and insert "$13,497,162".
Page 259, line 25, after "year" insert "and $1,000,000 the second year".
Page 259, line 26, strike "two" and insert "three".
Page 259, line 26, after "Centers.", insert:
"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 $1.0 million the second year from the general fund to restore funding to operate the current three poison control centers serving Virginia. 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 additional funding will ensure continued support for statewide operation of poison control services for the Commonwealth.)
