Page 94, line 45, after "2018.", insert:

"Beginning July 1, 2016, the FMA shall not pay any such amount to the City of Hampton until the City has recorded among the land records in the Office of the Circuit Court Clerk of the City of Hampton an instrument removing any liens or claims of liens on the real property of the Commonwealth at Fort Monroe.  Such instrument shall state that the City acknowledges that in the event of conflict between any fees in lieu of taxes provided for under § 2.2-2342 of the Code of Virginia and the Appropriations Act, the Appropriations Act shall prevail.  Such instrument shall further state that the FMA has paid all amounts set by the Appropriations Act for fiscal year 2014, fiscal year 2015 and fiscal year 2016 and that the City does not assert nor will it assert in the future any liens of any kind on the real property of the Commonwealth at Fort Monroe.   Such instrument shall be in a form acceptable to, and have the written approval of the Attorney General of the Commonwealth in advance of recordation.

6.  That notwithstanding § 1 of Chapter 809 of the Acts of Assembly of 1998, as amended by Chapter 713 of the Acts of Assembly of 2004, no provision of law shall suspend or affect the provision of the deed from the Commonwealth to the United States by which the Chamberlin Hotel at Fort Monroe, Virginia shall revert and revest in the Commonwealth."


(This amendment includes language under the Fort Monroe Authority (FMA) to clarify that the payments authorized in the Appropriation Act from FMA to the city of Hampton payment constitutes the full amount for payment in lieu of taxes; and to clarify that the Chamberlin Hotel should have reverted to the state when other surrounding property reverted.)
