(This amendment provides that $27.8 million of the $32.8 million deposit to the Water Quality Improvement Fund (WQIF) be transferred to the Natural Resources Commitment Fund, which is devoted to priority agricultural best management practices. The introduced budget had proposed only $14.0 million of the deposit be devoted to agricultural best management practices. The remaining $5.0 million will be available for other nonpoint source water quality projects. The amendment also restores mandatory carry forward language for Soil and Water Conservation Districts and the WQIF that had been eliminated in the introduced budget.)
