Page 519, after line 14, insert:
"e. No funding in this budget, or matching funds related to funding included in this budget, may be provided to enforce rules, regulations, or policies adopted by boards of visitors or other governing bodies of a public institution of higher education that would prohibit a full-time faculty member of the institution who possesses a valid Virginia Concealed handgun permit or a valid concealed handgun permit from a state with which Virginia has reciprocity, from carrying a concealed handgun on the property of or in the building owned by the institution."

(This amendment bars appropriated funds from being used to enforce any prohibition of faculty with rights to carry handguns from doing so on the property or in the facilities of any public institutions of higher education.)
