(This amendment restores $875,000 in each year to support the general operating costs of Soil and Water Conservation Districts (SWCD) to continue staffing support for water quality positions in the Shenandoah/Potomac watershed; hire new water quality positions for the lower tributaries of the Chesapeake Bay and the coastal rivers; and employ water quality positions for the Southern Rivers watershed. This funding was provided in the 2000 Session but the Governor's budget recommended removing this funding.)
