Transfer of real property held by the Virginia School for the Deaf, Blind, and Multi-Disabled in Hampton. Requires the residential programs of the Virginia School for the Deaf and the Blind at Staunton and the Virginia School for the Deaf, Blind and Multi-Disabled at Hampton to be modified.  The Department of General Services (i) is authorized to enter into a comprehensive agreement for the necessary renovations, additions, and new facility construction at the Staunton Campus under traditional procurement or the Public-Private Education Facilities and Infrastructure Act of 2002; (ii) must develop a plan for disposing of buildings and property located on both campuses that are no longer needed for special education purposes; and (iii) must work with the Cities of Staunton and Hampton and the Department of Historic Resources when considering proposals that may transfer ownership to or establish long-term leases with private entities. The properties must be conveyed with appropriate historic easements at fair market value with the proceeds reverting to the general fund to offset the cost of construction of the new facility. Authorizes the Governor to convey all real property, incluing all buildings and facilities located thereon, held in the name of the board of visitors of the Virginia School for the Deaf, Blind, and Multi-Disabled in Hampton to the New Horizons Regional Education Center, contingent on the two entities agreement on a facilities and land use plan. A second enactment clause declares that the funding for the new facility will be funded in accordance with the general appropriation act passed by the 2006 Session of the General Assembly, which becomes law. This bill is identical to SB 676. Read the Bill »
