Funds shall 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 is the first of two amendments to transfer $5.0 million GF currently included in Chapter 2 of the 2022 Acts of Assembly, Special Session I, from the Virginia Port Authority's Capital Outlay authorization to their operating budget. A companion amendment to Item C-66.1 eliminates the current $5.0 million Capital Outlay authorization.)
