(This amendment provides $2.9 million each year to re-benchmark the per pupil amount for the Virginia Preschool Initiative to the first year of the biennium based on the same percentage that Basic Aid increased in the first year due to re-benchmarking in the budget, as introduced. This action increases the per pupil amount from $6,000 to $6,250, an increase of 4.2 percent.)
