“V. Included within the appropriation for this Item is $100,000,000 the second year from the general fund to be allocated as follows: (i) $50,000,000 shall be made available to the Virginia Employment Commission to provide a one-time supplemental unemployment benefit to certain unemployed individuals who meet eligibility criteria established by the Commission to target long-term unemployed workers; and (ii) $50,000,000 shall be made available to the Virginia Community College System to increase enrollment and worker re-training opportunities in the Re-Employing Virginians (REV) program.”


(This amendment would provide $100 million GF the second year to provide $50 million GF for a one-time supplemental unemployment benefit for certain long-term unemployed individuals, and $50 million GF to expand the Re-Employing Virginians (REV) program through the Virginia Community College System. A companion amendment to Item 275 reduces the Revenue Reserve deposit by $100 million GF for this purpose.)
