(This amendment modifies budget language appropriating funding from the Virginia Health Care Fund (VHCF) to the Family Access to Medical Insurance Security (FAMIS) program. A companion amendment in Item 466 eliminates the proposed transfer of 1.5 percent of funds received under the Master Tobacco Settlement Agreement to the VHCF, which is then transferred to FAMIS to free up general funds. Additionally, an amendment in Item 300 eliminates the transfer of funding to the FAMIS program and provides general funds for the program.)
