(This amendment provides $2.5 million the second year from the general fund to increase support for soil and water conservation district (SWCD) operating expenses, including the costs of staff, rent, communications, and travel. From 1999 to 2007, each SWCD received $78,000 annually from the Commonwealth for these operating expenses. The reductions contained in the Governor's budget would reduce this operating support to $66,600 per district. To restore the districts' operating support to the 2007 level equals $2.5 million.)
