BILL NUMBER:S7342 TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the state finance law, in relation to dedicating certain funds for fish and wildlife purposes PURPOSE: This bill would amend the state finance law, in relation to dedicating certain funds for fish and wildlife purposes. SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS: Section 1 - Amends paragraph 1 of subdivision a of section 83 of the state finance law, as amended by chapter 512 of the laws of 1994. Section 2 - Effective date. JUSTIFICATION: This bill would provide protection from any future raids to the Conservation Fund which would jeopardize Federal fish and wildlife funding.
