Page 363, line 26, after "Virginia).", insert:

"Pursuant to § 58.1-817, the $1 recordation fee shall be imposed on each 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 clarifies that the deed recordation fee established in § 58.1-817 applies to instruments and documents recorded in the deed books in the clerk's offices of the circuit courts covered by this provision of law. Current Code provisions require the fee only be imposed on deeds admitted to record.)
