Be it enacted by the General Assembly of Virginia:

1. §1. That in accordance with and as evidence of General Assembly approval pursuant to §10.1-1107 of the Code of Virginia, the Department of Forestry is hereby authorized to convey, upon such terms as the Department deems proper, with the approval of the Governor, a perpetual right-of-way across a portion of the Appomattox-Buckingham State Forest, identified as tax map parcel number 176-12 in Buckingham County, to Robert H. Whistleman and Karen L. Whistleman. Such easement shall be 40 feet in width and run with the existing road in the location described to the greatest extent possible. The final easement may vary as necessary to reach the boundary of the Whistlemans' property and as deemed necessary by both parties as an improvement in the road location. The purpose of the conveyance from the Department of Forestry to Robert H. Whistleman and Karen L. Whistleman is to provide a right-of-way for ingress and egress and access for utilities from State Route 24 to the Whistlemans' parcel, identified as tax map parcel number 176-6.

§2. The granting and conveying of the easements and rights-of-way shall be made in a form approved by the Attorney General.
