"4. Included in this appropriation is $950,000 in the second year from the general fund to assist the City of Newport News with security enhancements around Fort Eustis. However, no funding shall be released unless an equal amount of funding is pledged by the City of Newport News. The Secretary of Veterans and Defense Affairs shall report to the Chairmen of the the House Committee on Appropriations and the Senate Committee on Finance on such projects and real property acquisitions undertaken from funds appropriated in this Item."


(This amendment provides $950,000 GF for the City of Newport News to acquire approximately 30 acres of property needed for construction of a new access gate at Fort Eustis. The current gate does not meet Army Force Protection standards.)
