"G. Included in this appropriation is $1,000,000 each year from the Enterprise Fund to support the Authority's efforts to increase enforcement of restrictions on the unlawful direct shipment into Virginia of alcoholic beverages by unlicensed businesses and fulfillment centers."


(This amendment provides $1.0 million from the nongeneral fund each year and 10 positions for ABC to increase enforcement efforts related to unlawful direct shipment of alcohol into Virginia. Unlicensed businesses and fulfillment centers represent substantial unrealized revenue for the Commonwealth and negatively impact lawful Virginia businesses' opportunities. The positions include four auditors, three non-sworn compliance agents, two special agents, and one license technician.)
