Page 424, after line 43, insert:
"H. Out of this appropriation, up to $139,000 and two positions the second year from the general fund shall be provided for establishing a benefits field office in the City of Chesapeake on the Chesapeake Campus of the Tidewater Community College. The Department of Veterans Services and the Tidewater Community College are authorized to enter into an agreement for office space and support on the Chesapeake Campus. Such agreement shall include a provision for Tidewater Community College to provide the required furnished and equipped office space at no cost to the Commonwealth."

(This amendment authorizes the Department of Veterans Services to utilize a portion of increased funding that is included in the introduced budget to establish a new benefits field office in the City of Chesapeake in partnership with the Tidewater Community College. Tidewater Community College will provide the required office space, resulting in a savings to the Commonwealth for these costs.)
