(This amendment removes language stating that funding for the Department of Forestry's radio system replacement is contingent upon passage of the Governor's tax proposal. FCC rules on the use of radio frequencies have changed, and as a result DOF will lose use of radios in one-third of the state by 2005 if the system is not replaced. This funding, to be provided through the master equipment lease program, is required to ensure that required system changes are funded.)
