"B. Out of the appropriation for Administrative and Support Services, $50,000 is provided each year from the general fund for a review of the efficiency and effectiveness of the Department's pollution permit programs, pursuant to Senate Bill 365 (2004 Session)."

(This amendment provides general funds for the Department to contract for a study of its water and waste permit programs. The study is to identify ways of lowering program costs in the long run so that the permit fees paid by localities and private industry may be reduced. The study is mandated by Senate Bill 365 (2004 Session) which authorized a new permit fee schedule.)
