Default Re: National Federal Registry / Saltwater License News

"Gov. Paterson ignored their recommendations in his original budget proposal, and wanted the saltwater funds placed in the Wildlife Management Fund where the new funding could be used for unrelated fresh water and forest purposes. The Legislature restored the essential portions, and included a Marine Resources Account within the Wildlife Conservation Fund.

Yet, Golofaro was informed that the governor has already declared the saltwater funds coming in next year will be used to pay for presently unfounded positions in the Department of Environmental Conservation rather than for the launching ramps, piers, etc., that license advocates were expecting."

So essentially the saltwater license money will fund Bureaucracy? I can't imagine the Governor of NY using the money to hire more DEM Officers. Things generally don't work out that way.
