(This amendment reduces $722,472 the second year from the general fund for COVID-19 data modeling, being provided by the University of Virginia's Biocomplexity Institute and the RAND corporation to provide epidemiologic analysis for the state's response to COVID-19. This amendment removes half the second year funding assuming that after calendar year 2021, the need for such modeling would likely be mitigated as the COVID-19 pandemic subsides as a result of widespread use of vaccines. In the case that COVID-19 continues as a public health emergency for longer and the need for such modeling continues, additional funding can be provided for this purpose in the 2022 General Assembly Session.)
