(This amendment provides the general fund dollars necessary to fill two vacant marine police officer positions in the second year of the biennium. These positions would augment the funding included in the introduced budget filling four vacant marine police officer positions in the first and second years. The additional positions supported by the amendment would better enable the Virginia Marine Resources Commission's law enforcement officers to reduce poaching of oysters from Virginia's oyster sanctuaries, protect Virginians from the harvest of oysters and other stocks condemned by the Health Department, and provide for boating safety inspections and search and rescue operations.)
