(This amendment eliminates general fund dollars included in the introduced budget to have Virginia assume funding for the Citizen Corps, a program designed to coordinate volunteer efforts in homeland security. The program is coordinated nationally by the Department of Homeland Security's Federal Emergency Management Agency. The program has been funded by the federal government since its inception in 2001. The federal government has terminated the grants that previously supported the program.)
