LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


SB 1311, Chesbro. Salmon and steelhead trout habitat.
The Budget Act of 1999 prohibits the expenditure of federal funds available from the Pacific Coastal Salmon Recovery Account administered by the National Marine Fisheries Service or from any other source for the Watershed and Salmon Restoration Strategy Program that are not appropriated in that act unless and until a statute is enacted authorizing and defining that program and specifying the use of the federal funds.
This bill would appropriate $9,000,000 in federal funds from the Pacific Coastal Salmon Recovery Fund to the Department of Fish and Game for the protection and recovery of salmon and steelhead trout pursuant to a specified Memorandum of Understanding between the Department of Fish and Game, the Resources Agency, and the United States Department of Commerce, National Marine Fisheries Service. The bill would make a legislative finding that this provision satisfies the requirements of the Budget Act of 1999, as specified.
This bill would also declare that it is to take effect immediately as an urgency statute.
