Notwithstanding the provisions of Article 7, Chapter 15, Title 56, Code of Virginia, $3,700,000 from the Wireless E-911 Fund each year is included in this appropriation for telecommunications to offset dispatch center operations and related costs incurred for answering wireless 911 telephone calls.

C. Out of the Motor Carrier Special Fund, $900,000 the first year and $900,000 the second year shall be disbursed on a quarterly basis to the Department of State Police.

D.1. This appropriation includes $2,510,000 the second year from the general fund for implementing the Statewide Agencies Radio System (STARS) project.
