(This amendment removes second year funding for a new initiative adopted by the 2016 Session of the General Assembly which provides small grants to assist with the marketing of agriculture. Given the need to reduce general fund expenditures to offset the reduced revenue forecast, the Committee sought to restore cuts to core programs rather than fund new initiatives. The program was not included in the House budget last year, but adopted during Conference.)
