"2. The Department of State Police shall sell an existing medflight helicopter and, from the proceeds of the sale, satisfy its outstanding obligations under paragraph N.1. of this Item for that unit. The Department shall report on the sale and repayment of the lease to the Director of the Department of Planning and Budget and the Chairmen of the House Appropriations and Senate Finance Committees within 30 days of the sale of the helicopter, and transfer to the general fund any balances that remain after such transactions required by this paragraph."

Page 367, after line 34, insert:

"Q. Notwithstanding §38.2-415, Code of Virginia, the Department of State Police is authorized to use $1,200,000 in the first year from the Insurance Fraud Fund to supplement insurance proceeds to purchase a replacement helicopter for the unit that crashed in August 2017."


(This amendment adjusts amounts proposed in the introduced budget to eliminate $0.4 million GF in each year, and provide $1.2 million NGF in the first year for helicopter replacement. The adjusted amounts provide general fund appropriation through the Master Equipment Leasing Program for the replacement of a medflight helicopter, and nongeneral fund appropriation from the Insurance Fraud Fund to supplement insurance proceeds for the replacement of the helicopter that crashed in August 2017.)
