(This amendment provides an additional general fund appropriation of $300,000 in the first year to the Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services' "Plant Pest and Disease Control" program. Hydrilla is an invasive plant species that interferes with recreation, destroys fish and wildlife habitats, and can severely impact water delivery systems.)
