(This amendment captures $2.0 million the first year from the general fund for deferring funding to the new Norfolk Botanical Garden's The Garden of Tomorrow project. This amendment removes funding proposed in House Bill 1700 as introduced for a new program at the Botanical Garden. The Committee budget funding levels were limited to the additional dollars available pursuant to the economic reforecast presented in December, identified programmatic savings, and revenues generated by legislation expanding the collection of sales tax attributable to internet sales. All revenues attributable to the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (TCJA) are captured in the Taxpayer Relief Fund and the Revenue Reserve Fund in Item 475.10. This required removing approximately $1.2 billion in spending compared to House Bill 1700 as introduced.)
