(This amendment increases by $50,000 from the general fund each year the amounts provided for DCR shoreline erosion advisory services, increasing totaling funding to $200,000 each year. This amount mirrors the funding provided in the House Budget for such activities during the 2015 Session. The amounts will be used to support additional financial resources for stream bank and shoreline erosion control to reduce harmful impacts to the waters of the Chesapeake Bay, to aid in meeting mandated nutrient and sediment reduction goals for the Bay TMDL, and to provide citizens of the Commonwealth with science-based stream bank and shoreline erosion reduction techniques. Funding for the Department of Conservation and Recreation's Shoreline Erosion Advisory Service (SEAS) program requires the increased amount to fund the second full-time DCR SEAS employee.)
