Page 335, after line 31, insert:

"I.  Included in this appropriation is $7,416,469 the first year and $7,416,469 the second year of nongeneral funds derived from unrefunded marine fuels tax collections that are to be utilized to support the enhancement of commercial waterways through the Virginia Waterway Maintenance Grant Program."


(This amendment dedicates an estimated $7.4 million from unrefunded motor fuel collections to the Marine Resources Commission for the Virginia Waterway Maintenance Grant Program. Currently those funds are transferred to the general fund to help balance the state budget and offset the costs of Chesapeake Bay clean up. A companion amendment to Item 3-1.01 C. eliminates the transfer from the Department of Motor Vehicles to the General Fund, reducing general fund resources by a like amount.)
