"I. Out of this appropriation $500,000 the second year from the general fund shall be used to support the state portion of the agricultural best management practices cost-share program."

(This amendment provides funds for the Best Management Practices cost-share program operated by the Department of Conservation and Recreation. This is a voluntary, incentive-based program which supports statewide efforts to reduce nonpoint source pollution. Under this program, the costs for conservation measures are shared by the Commonwealth and individual landowners. Funds for this increase result from a transfer from the Marine Habitat and Waterways Improvement Fund.)
