Page 363, line 37, after "access." insert:

"Pursuant to § 58.1-817, Code of Virginia, there is hereby imposed a $1.00 fee on each conveyancing instrument or document recorded in the proper book for filing of land records in those jurisdictions in which open-space easements are held by the Virginia Outdoors Foundation."


(This amendment would clarify that the existing deed recordation fee established in 2004 pursuant to § 58.1-817, Code of Virginia, applies to conveyancing instruments and documents recorded in the deed books in the clerks' offices of the circuit courts covered by this provision of law.)
