(This amendment restores operational funding for each of the 47 local soil and water conservation districts. Cumulative budget reductions, including an additional 8 percent reduction in the introduced budget, have reduced support to $66,600 for each district, which takes funding to below 1999 levels. This amendment would restore the budget for each district office to $120,000, which is the minimum amount each office needs to maintain required service delivery. It is the intent of the General Assembly that the restoration of this funding shall be properly accounted for in calculating the revised amount of savings from executive management actions contained in Item 361 and § 4-1.08 during the enrollment of HB 1600/ SB 850, as adopted by the 2009 General Assembly.)
