(This amendment provides $97,000 in fiscal year 2024 from the general fund for the Virginia Tourism Authority and Department of Historic Resources to conduct a historic study describing Green Book sites in Virginia. The information gathered will accelerate and simplify the listing of these properties on the Virginia Landmarks Register, making them eligible for potential sources of funding, highway markers, and increase public education about the Green Book and Black History in Virginia.)
