Page 411, line 42, strike "$973,912" and insert "$1,173,912".

Page 411, at the beginning of line 48, insert "A."

Page 411, after line 49, insert:

"B. Included in this item is $200,000 the second year from the general fund to support the department's continued collaboration with the Department of Conservation and Recreation and allow for shared usage of the DCR Natural Heritage Data Explorer."


(This amendment would provide $200,000 each year to the Department of Historic Resources to create a "one-stop" web-accessible GIS map for project screening and information about the general location of cultural resources as well as natural resources for project proponents to use at the earliest stages of planning. This database will help avoid sensitive resources and thus reduce conflicts and delays that may otherwise arise during the permit review process.)
