A. L. Philpott Southside Economic Development Commission. Continues the 23-member A. L. Philpott Southside Economic Development Commission, through an uncodified act, for two years to monitor the implementation of its previous recommendations, its economic development grants initiative, the activities of the Southside Business and Education Commission, the Southside Virginia Marketing Council, and the Southside Virginia Development Authority, and relevant regional economic development issues as it deems appropriate. The University of Virginia Center for Public Service shall provide staff support for the Commission. Established in 1990 to propose recommendations to improve and enhance the economic development of Southside Virginia, the Commission's six-year study has yielded numerous recommendations for the revitalization of the Southside region, including the establishment of the Southside Business and Education Commission, the Southside Virginia Marketing Council, and the Southside Virginia Development Authority. The Philpott Commission also supported the creation of the new Governor's School for Global Economics and Technology in Southside Virginia and the A. L. Philpott Manufacturing Research Center at Patrick Henry Community College.
