(This amendment restores ten park ranger positions that were eliminated in recent budget cuts. The amendment also provides funds for four new rangers. These fourteen positions will support park operations throughout the Commonwealth. Without additional staff, the Department of Conservation and Recreation will not be able to meet the security, visitor service, interpretive, and maintenance needs that will result from increased park attendance as the 2002 General Obligation Bond projects are developed.)
