Explanation

(This amendment provides $20,250 each year from the general fund to supports the provision of funding $5.00 per year per grave for Revolutionary War graves. It implements the provisions of House Bill 153, 2018 Session of the General Assembly, which increases the number of recognized graves from 150 up to a maximum of 4,200. The Virginia Society, Sons of the American Revolution, have identified 4,200 of such graves and any funds not dispersed to the group would be retained by the Department of Historic Resources and distributed at the discretion of the department to grants for maintenance, renovation, repair or reconstruction of cemeteries or graves or to erect and care for markers, memorials and monuments.)
