"G. Out of the amounts included in this appropriation, $36,000,000 in the second year from the general fund shall support the administrative costs of the Virginia Employment Commission pursuant to the passage of House Bill 5054 of the 2020 General Assembly Special Session I."


(This amendment provides a second year general fund appropriation of $36 million to cover the administrative costs for the Virginia Employment Commission. House Bill 5054 would bring Virginia out of compliance with federal unemployment compensation law and jeopardize Virginia's federal funds for administration of the unemployment insurance program. The funding contained in this amendment is contingent upon the passage of House Bill 5054. Upon enrolling, Item 131 will be set out and enrolled appropriately.)
