Explanation
(This amendment provides the general fund dollars necessary to fill two vacant marine police officer positions. These positions, in addition to the four vacancies for which funding was provided in the introduced budget, would better enable the Virginia Marine Resources Commission's law enforcement officers to reduce poaching of oysters from Virginia oyster sanctuaries, protect Virginians from the harvest of oysters and other stocks condemned by the Health Department, and boating safety inspections and search and rescue operations.)
