|Statement of Purpose|
This is a trailer appropriation bill for fiscal year 2004 to fill in some holes left by the original budgets set by the Joint Finance-Appropriations Committee. This bill would carve out a small portion of the additional revenues passed by the Legislature to cover some key items in these budgets.
The bill appropriates $1,811,700 from the General Fund and reduces dedicated funds by $550,000 for a total of $1,261,700.
Sections 1 and 2 deal with the Department of Environmental Quality. These sections shift $300,000 from the air quality permitting fund to the General Fund to assure the continuation of air quality monitoring and restore $153,400 to the Water Quality Program.
Section 3 provides $171,000 for the Forest and Range Fire protection Program in the Department of Lands to restore some of money cut for fire personnel and grants to local communities.
Section 4 restores $250,000 of a $639,000 cut in General Funds that the Department of Parks and Recreation took the first time around in JFAC. General Funds are increased $250,000 and dedicated park funds are reduced by the same amount.
Section 5 provides one more year of carryover authority for Parks and Recreation for a challenge grant program for the Bruneau Dunes Science Center. $400,000 in one-time General Funds was appropriated two years ago for this project, but the funds can only be spent if a like amount of donations or non-state funds can be secured as match.
Section 6 provides $167,000 in one-time General Funds to the office of the Secretary of State to provide matching fund support for the federal Help America Vote Act.
Section 7 provides the State Controller with carryover authority for its dedicated funds.
Sections 8 and 9 restore a two-tenths position reduction for the Board of Tax Appeals, and restore lost operating funds.
Section 10 provides $625,000 to the Attorney General for the Special Litigation program to augment the $326,600 that was appropriated during the first go around of budget-setting.
Section 11 provides the Office of the Attorney General carryover authority for the Special Litigation Program.
Section 12 provides $125,000 in one-time General Fund support to continue the federal lands working group.
