"D. Out of this appropriation, $1,937,048 the first year and $2,884,049 the second year from the general fund is designated to support the goals of access, affordability, quality and increased degrees.  Funds provided in this item support the institution's priorities to hire new faculty, to support operations and maintenance of new facilities, to increase student retention and success, to support in-state undergraduate enrollment growth.  Given the increased general fund, it is the intent of the General Assembly that in-state undergraduate tuition should not increase by more than 3.0%  in each year.  However, a formal request and justification for increases that exceed this percent may be submitted by the institution to the Governor for his approval.  The Director, Department of Planning and Budget, shall report to the Chairmen of the House Appropriations and Senate Finance Committees by August 1, 2016 on the receipt and status of such requests.

E. Notwithstanding any other provision of law, the University of Mary Washington may enter into an agreement with the Fredericksburg Regional Alliance, a nonprofit organization dedicated to cooperative economic development efforts in the Fredericksburg region, for the purpose of expanding regional efforts in the field of economic development and research."


(This amendment provides additional general funds to support the goals of access, affordability, quality and increased degrees. It also reflects legislative intent with regard to in-state undergraduate tuition increases.)
