"Auditor of Public Accounts".

Page 320, line 27, strike "Department" and insert "Auditor".

Page 320, line 28, after "programs." insert:

"The Department of Environmental Quality shall, at the request of the Auditor of Public Accounts, offer assistance to the Auditor's office in the review of the submitted reports."


(This amendment removes the requirement that each locality with a stormwater service charge file a report with DEQ as to the programs funded by these fees and the expected nutrient and sediment reductions for each of these programs and instead requires that this report be filed by October 1 of each year with the Auditor of Public Accounts. Upon request, the DEQ would continue to offer assistance to the APA in their review of the reports. The requirement to ensure compliance with the Code of Virginia shall remain in place.)
