(This amendment provides $1.2 million and eight positions for DEQ to implement a State Programmatic General Permit program. The program will streamline the wetland permitting process by eliminating duplicative efforts of DEQ and the Army Corps of Engineers. The Corps has given tentative approval of this effort. As a result, DEQ anticipates permitting some 310 more sites each year. The funding and positions respond to the increased workload.)
