Page 325, line 29, strike "$61,354,690" and insert "$72,854,690".

Page 325, line 44, strike "$4,500,000" and insert "$16,000,000".

Page 325, line 45, following "Code of Virginia." insert:

"The Virginia Land Conservation Foundation shall conduct a grant competition for the second year funding prior to December 31, 2018 and shall inform the Chairmen of the House Appropriations and Senate Finance Committee of all project proposals and rankings prior to January 15, 2019. Second year grants shall not be awarded until after July 1, 2019."


(This amendment would increase the second year funding for the Virginia Land Conservation Foundation to the amount called for in HB 1398 of the 2013 General Assembly and include language requiring the VLCF to conduct a grant competition for the entire $16.0 million prior to December 31, 2018. This will give the General Assembly the opportunity to see the proposed projects and how they ranked prior to the money actually being granted.)
