(This amendment eliminates $900,000 the second year from the general fund for a new program to provide grants to service providers who assist veterans in entrepreneurship. Companion legislation authorizing this new program (SB 1114) was not reported by the Senate Finance Committee. A companion amendment to Item 466 directs the Secretary of Veterans and Defense Affairs to convene a working group to develop a program with the Virginia Community College System to provide assistance to veterans in entrepreneurship, and to report its recommendations to the Chairmen of the Senate Finance and House Appropriations Committees by October 1, 2017.)
