"C. Included in the amounts for this item, $200,000 the first year and $200,000 the second year from nongeneral funds for the administration of the Packaging Stewardship Program consistent with the provisions of House Bill 647 of the 2022 Session of the General Assembly."


(This amendment provides $200,000 from the nongeneral fund each year to operate the Packaging Stewardship Program and Fund pursuant to House Bill 647. The bill would require producers of packaging materials located in the Commonwealth to pay a fee to the Department of Environmental Quality based upon the amount of packaging produced and whether such packaging is easily recyclable. This amendment is a placeholder until a fiscal impact statement for the bill is produced.)
