"I.1. It is the intent of the General Assembly that federal awards from the Help America Vote Act of 2002 (HAVA) under P.L. 116-93 be used to replace the Virginia Election and Registration Information System (VERIS) by July 1, 2022. Out of the amounts included in this item, $2,035,142 the first year from the general fund shall serve as the state's required match to receive the federal HAVA award."


(This amendment provides the general fund match for Virginia's federal grant from the Help America Vote Act. A separate amendment in House Bill 29 appropriates the federal nongeneral fund HAVA award.)
