"However, beginning in fiscal year 2016, the Director, Department of Planning and Budget is directed to deposit all revenues generated pursuant to § 18.2-340.31 to the Office of Charitable and Regulatory Programs for use in regulating the programs.  When the proposed biennial budget for fiscal years 2017 and 2018 is submitted to the General Assembly in December 2015, the Department of Planning and Budget is hereby directed to recognize all funds generated pursuant to § 18.2-340.31 as dedicated special revenue and to propose the appropriation of all such funds for the purpose for which they were imposed, with no amounts being transferred to the general fund for other purposes."

(This amendment would appropriate all revenues generated by charitable gaming activities to the VDACS Office of Charitable and Regulatory Programs for the oversight and inspection of gaming parlors. Also included is an increase in the maximum employment level of the Office of 2.00 positions, which would be used to hire additional inspectors to ensure the programs are run in a legal fashion.)
