"S. Out of the amounts in this Item, $1,427,000 the second year from the general fund shall be provided to the Virginia Economic Development Partnership Authority as supplemental funding for expenses related to the provision of recruitment and training services through the Authority's Virginia Talent Accelerator Program for the benefit of the operators of a nitrile butadiene rubber production plant and a medical-grade glove manufacturing facility slated for development in Progress Park in the County of Wythe.  These services will support the recruitment and training for up to 2,464 new jobs through 2026.  These services are in addition to the services that the Authority expects to provide through the Virginia Talent Accelerator Program to other businesses around the Commonwealth as funded through Item 130 J."


(This amendment provides $1.4 million GF in FY 2022 to the Virginia Talent Accelerator Program to establish a nitrile glove manufacturing training program as part of the incentive package for Blue Star, approved by the MEI Commission in December 2022. A companion amendment to SB 30 is also included that will provide an additional $1.3 million GF in the next biennium.)
