Page 76, after line 25, insert:

"B. Notwithstanding the provisions of § 3.2-4416, Code of Virginia, the department shall not accept applications for grants from the Beehive Grant Program if funds are not appropriated for such purposes nor shall the department be required to continue to accept applications for the program if funds appropriated have been fully allocated to grantees for a given fiscal year."


(This amendment clarifies that VDACS is not required to accept Beehive Grant applications if no appropriation is made to the Fund nor is it required to continue to receive applications in a given year if all funding has been allocated.)
