§ 47-0115. Reimbursement.

Up to one-half of the expenditures during the state fiscal year of any
county or regional environmental management council established pursuant
to this article shall be reimbursed to the counties out of funds
appropriated by the state to the Department of Environmental
Conservation for this purpose. Provided, however, that any county
environmental agency established pursuant to a provision of law other
than this article shall be entitled to such reimbursement if the
commissioner of the department of environmental conservation finds that
the powers, duties, and reporting lines for the major reports of such
council are substantially the same as those provided in section 47-0107
of this article, and that the membership structure thereof either
complies with the provisions of subdivision one of section 47-0105 of
this article or that such membership structure is designed to encourage
local participation and coordination in the planning of activities to
influence the ecological balance of the locality. Necessary and
appropriate rules and regulations for administration of the local
assistance purposes of this act may be promulgated by the commissioner.
