(This amendment restores $1.2 million from the general fund in the second year for state park operations and 15 FTE positions that have been cut in prior budgets. These funds and positions are necessary to help address record state park visitation and provide needed maintenance support. These funds may also be utilized to fill seasonal wage positions, in addition to the 15 FTE positions provided. Since fiscal year 2008, general fund support for state parks has been cut by about $5.0 million. This amendment restores about 25 percent of the prior reductions.)
