"A.  1. Out of this appropriation, $250,000 the first year from the general fund is designated for pre-planning for an indoor gallery to enhance the other existing indoor spaces that supplement what is primarily an outdoor living history setting.  The project should demonstrate how it best coordinates and leverages the ability to offer an indoor experience in the event of inclement weather and that leverages the lecture hall, barn, and covered pavilion areas in coordination with the outdoor signature exhibits.  The plan should take into consideration a scale that is commensurate with existing annual visitation levels and possible potential levels given population and location.  The plan may offer options for future expansion in subsequent years to ensure efficiency in any additional long-term projects that may be desired. 2.  The Frontier Culture Museum shall report the pre-planning study to the Chairmen of the House Appropriations and Senate Finance Committees by September 1 of the year prior to the request for detailed planning."


(This amendment provides pre-planning funds of $250,000 from the general fund in the first year for an indoor museum gallery building at the Frontier Culture Museum of Virginia.)
