(This amendment supplants $30.2 million the first year and $59.1 million the second year to support the Commonwealth's mass vaccination efforts in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. On December 27, 2020, the federal Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2021 was signed into law which provides substantial federal assistance to support states in vaccine administration efforts. Virginia's share of this funding is $77.1 million. With this additional federal support, the general fund added in the introduced budget can be supplanted with federal funds. The new federal funding is not sufficient to fully supplant all $89.3 million of general fund in the biennium, however, Coronavirus Relief Funds (CRF) allocated to the Department of Medical Assistance Services have not been fully utilized, so this amendment includes $12.2 million in the first year in CRF funds. A separate amendment in Central Appropriations reflects the change in the allocation of CRF funds.)
