|Statement of Purpose|
This appropriation to the Soil Conservation Commission provides additional funding for conservation improvement grants for water quality projects. The Water Quality Program provides cost share to landowners to implement best management practices. These one-time funds will be used to catch-up projects that have been delayed due to emphasis on the Eastern Snake Plain Mitigation and will be used in conjunction with low interest loans provided by the Resource Conservation and Rangeland Development Fund.
This bill transfers $160,000 from the General Fund to the Economic Recovery Reserve Fund then appropriates that amount to the Soil Conservation Commission for a two year period for conservation improvement grants.
