Page 129, line 5, strike "It shall be the policy of the Commonwealth".
Page 129, line 30, strike "that state funds and required local matching funds for the Virginia Preschool Initiative not be".
Page 129, line 30, strike "used for capital outlay."
Page 130, line 34, after "authorized to expend" insert "50 percent".
Page 130, line 36, strike "other than capital,".

(This language amendment eliminates the current state policy that does not permit PreK funds to be used for capital outlay. It also allows the Department of Education to use 50 percent of the unobligated balances as capital grants for schools to create new classroom space with the requirement that it be used for PreK expansion.)
