Health and Human Resources
Department of Health

Page 249, line 49, unstrike "$40.00" and strike "$285.00".
Page 249, line 45, after "B." insert "1.".
Page 250, after line 3, insert:
"2. The Virginia Department of Health shall undertake a review of restaurant permit fees in other states and report on how their restaurant inspection programs are funded (i.e. fees, general fund, etc).  The department shall report this information to the Chairmen of House Appropriations and Senate Finance Committees by November 1, 2015."

(This amendment modifies language to eliminate the increase in restaurant permit fees from the savings strategy in the introduced budget which would have generated $3.8 million in savings to the state from additional revenue in fiscal year 2016 by raising restaurant annual permit fees from $40.00 to $285.00. In addition, the Department of Health is directed to review restaurant inspection programs in other states and report on how their programs are funded.)
