Page 407, strike lines 20 through 24 and insert:

"H.1. Any unexpended general fund balances as of June 30, 2016  that were appropriated for the purpose of supporting the City of Richmond in the development of the Slavery and Freedom Heritage Site in Richmond shall not revert to the general fund but shall instead be reappropriated for its original purpose.   Out of the $2,000,000 originally appropriated, $1,000,000 shall be used for improvements to the Slave Trail, and $1,000,000 for costs associated with Lumpkin's Pavilion."  


(This amendment eliminates duplicative funding included in the introduced budget of $2.0 million from the general fund in fiscal year 2017 for development of the Slavery and Freedom Heritage Site in Richmond. Funding of $2.0 million for the project is included in the fiscal year 2016 appropriation and the funds have not yet been accessed. The amendment in the introduced budget was intended to ensure the original funding would remain available.)
