Environmental Conservation (ENV)

  The legislature hereby finds and declares that:

  The state enjoys an abundance of natural and man-made beauty which greatly enriches the lives of the people of this state. The preservation, enhancement and promotion of this beauty will contribute significantly to the enjoyment of the people who live and work in the state, as well as the millions of visitors who come to the state each year. Further efforts by state government are needed to coordinate and promote programs contributing to the natural and man-made beauty, and to provide advice and assistance to local governments.
