"H. Included in the appropriation for this item is an increase of $2,140,866 in the first year and $2,140,866 in the second year from the general fund and $497,030 in the first year and $497,030 in the second year from nongeneral fund resources to provide supplemental support to State Parks operational and non-capital maintenance needs."


(This amendment requests $2.1 million from the general fund and $500,000 of nongeneral fund resources to support the ongoing operational and non-capital maintenance cost requirements at Virginia's State Parks not met through existing appropriation levels. The general fund amounts would be utilized to cover routine and ongoing operations. Without an increase in funding, critical repairs may become necessary at a greater expense and State Parks will be forced to again hold staff vacancies in order to free up funds for other operating necessities. There is an additional need for $1.0 million for new equipment replacement each year as State Parks will have 12 new cabins, 3 new lodges and 47 new yurts coming online in 2019.)
