R.1. Notwithstanding § 10.1-2129 A., Code of Virginia, $5,884,000 the first year from the general fund shall be deposited to the Water Quality Improvement Fund established under the Water Quality Improvement Act of 1997. This amount shall be appropriated for the implementation of previously approved livestock stream exclusion practices. Of the amount for livestock stream exclusion practices, $4,600,000 shall be used for practices on land in the Commonwealth exclusively or partly outside the Chesapeake Bay watershed and $608,000 shall be used for practices on lands in the Commonwealth exclusively inside the Chesapeake Bay watershed.  From these amounts, $676,000 shall be appropriated to the Virginia Soil and Water Conservation Districts for technical assistance to farmers implementing agricultural best management practices."
