(This amendment removes new language proposed by the Governor in House Bill 1500 which is contrary to the General Assembly's expressed intent as evidenced by language included in this paragraph by the 2016 General Assembly which would prohibit the Department of Conservation and Recreation from accepting by gift, transfer or purchase any lands for use as a state park without the approval of the General Assembly. A companion amendment in Capital Outlay eliminates nongeneral fund appropriations for DCR to purchase park land or lands to be designated as natural area preserves.)
