Page 337, line 9, strike "$80,006,361" and insert "$80,606,361".

Page 338, after line 31, insert:

"9. To the Summer Training and Enrichment Program (STEP) in the City of Newport News, $600,000 the first year from the general fund."


(This amendment provides $600,000 the first year for the STEP pilot Program in Newport News, which offers summer employment opportunities for at-risk young adults. In 2015, the City successfully ran the program with tangible outcomes, but the program was limited to participants living in the Southeast Community of Newport News. The funding would allow the pilot program to be expanded to the northern part of the City, with implications for becoming a statewide pilot program.)
