Page 316, after line 36, insert:

"H. The Board of Conservation and Recreation shall consider whether public-private partnerships would (i) result in greater operational efficiencies in the planning, development, construction, and operation of new state parks and in the management of existing state parks and (ii) generate cost savings, allow for additional state park amenities, and increase operational revenues for state parks.  Technical assistance shall be provided to the Board by the Department of Conservation and Recreation.  The Board shall submit a report to the Governor and the Chairmen of the House Appropriations and Senate Finance Committees no later than November 15, 2016."


(This amendment directs DCR to evaluate whether cost reductions and other efficiencies could be generated by increasing public-private partnerships for the development and operation of state parks.)
