State Budget cutting options for environment


Yet to be determined is how the next round of state budget cuts will affect public programs. Two-thirds of the $35 billion state budget is restricted so the cuts have to come from the $10 billion available. One proposal from the state Fish and Wildlife Department would direct state-run hatcheries to cut costs by collecting less Chinook salmon eggs. Issaquah hatchery could collect fewer salmon eggs as cost-cutting measure http://www.issaquahpress.com/2011/09/27/issaquah-hatchery-could-collect-fewer-salmon-eggs-as-cost-cutting-measure/ 

State parks, with the new Discover Pass fee schedule, are meant to become fully self-sustaining but the interim funding to get there may be cut. State Parks faces new round of budget cuts http://www.pnwlocalnews.com/sanjuans/jsj/news/130675093.html
