Page 578, line 13, after "Virginia", insert:

". The Governor shall appropriate an amount up to $81,072,241 the first year from the COVID-19 Relief Fund for No Loss and Learning Loss Supplemental  Payments to be distributed to school divisions as provided in Item 145.  Any additional appropriations shall be used".


(This amendment provides an appropriation of up to $81.1 million the first year from the state COVID-19 Relief Fund to Item 145 to fund Learning Loss Supplemental Payments and a portion of the No Loss Payments. The budget approved at the 2020 Special Session provided up to $95.2 million from this fund be appropriated to public education, however the introduced budget proposed removing payments from the fund from public education, and backfilling with general funds. Revenues from games of skill machines are deposited into the COVID-19 Relief Fund.)
