"D. Included the amounts in this item, $5,000,000 from the general fund in the first year is provided to fund a pilot municipal dredge program operated by the Middle Peninsula Chesapeake Bay Public Access Authority for the dredging of shovel-ready projects, to be distributed by the Virginia Port Authority upon approval of a Municipal Dredging Operating Program and a Municipal Dredging Operating Agreement. Funding for this program is designated for shovel-ready shallow-draft dredging projects in localities identified in Chapter 66 of the Code of Virginia, or through the development of operating agreements between the Middle Peninsula Chesapeake Bay Public Access Authority and the Eastern Shore Water Access Authority or the Northern Neck Public Access Authority."    


(This amendment reflects the transfer of $5.0 million from the general fund in one-time funding for dredging projects from the capital budget,in Chapter 2, to the operating budget. A companion amendment under Item C-66.1 strikes the funding under capital.)
