(This amendment removes the additional $5.5 million each year proposed in House Bill 1700 as introduced for the Virginia Land Conservation Foundation. Chapter 2, as adopted by the General Assembly in the 2018 Special Session 1 provided no general fund support for the VLCF in fiscal year 2019 in reflection of the fact that the Foundation is receiving $71.7 million for land purchases from a series of environmental and historic resources settlements. These amounts were deemed sufficient for land and easement purchases in the short term. Second year funding was maintained at the 2018 level of $4.5 million.)
