"M.  Out of this appropriation, $7,500,000 the first year and $7,500,000 the second year from the general fund is provided for the Workforce Incentive Training Fund."

(This amendment would provide $7.5 million GF in each year for a Workforce Incentive Training Fund at the Virginia Community College System (VCCS). This program would provide an incentive of $1,000 per Virginia student successfully completing both the training and required testing for certification and licensure (maximum of 7,500 Virginians). This would expand Virginia's skilled workforce.)
