|Statement of Purpose|
This FY 2007 supplemental appropriation provides $116,300 in additional dedicated spending authority to the Department of Lands.
At the July 10, 2006 meeting, the State Board of Land Commissioners increased the private forest land owner fire protection rates from $.45 per acre to $.55 per acre, and from $10 to $20 per improved parcel effective for 2006. (The legislature approved a maximum rate of $.60 per acre and a maximum $20 per parcel in HB 46 of 2003.) As a landowner, the endowments must pay the additional 10 cents per acre for wildland fire protection. The land holdings currently total about 2.5 million acres for all of the beneficiaries of which just over one million acres are designated as forest land subject to the assessment. The state also has 515 cottage sites that are now subject to the improved parcel assessment at $20 each.
This FY 2007 Supplemental Appropriation includes $106,000 for the Resource Management Program and $10,300 for the Land, Range and Mineral Management program for a total of $116,300 from the Endowment Administrative Fund. Those dollars are then passed through to the Fire Protection Program for fire protection of state endowment lands.
