(This amendment restores $150,000 each year from the general fund, which is used to match federal funds, for the Virginia Student Loan Repayment Program, which provides incentives to qualified medical, dental, behavioral health and pharmaceutical professionals in return for a two-year service commitment in designated health professional shortage areas. The funding for this program was eliminated in the introduced budget.)
