"I. Out of this appropriation, $671,601 the first year and $455,402 the second year from the general fund is included to fund seven additional water quality foresters to provide consistency and expertise for the enforcement of water quality laws as they relate to silvicultural activities."

(This amendment provides funding for seven additional water quality foresters. No new positions are necessary as there are unfunded positions available within the agency's existing maximum position level. The introduced budget also included eight new water quality foresters to create a water quality team.)
