(This amendment moves one of the two items associated with the Virginia Racing Commission.

A companion amendment to Item 99.2 moves the remaining portion of the Commission within Agriculture and Forestry and two amendments eliminate the funding from Items 124 and 125 and transfer the same amounts and language to the Secretariat of Agriculture and Forestry.)
