Intent Language

HB0003: Item 104

Under the terms of 63J-1-603 of the Utah Code, the Legislature intends that appropriations provided for the Wildlife Resources Capital line item in Item 12, Chapter 5, Laws of Utah 2014, shall not lapse at the close of FY 2015. Expenditures of these funds are limited to Operations and Maintenance of the Hatchery Systems in the state: $649,400.

Two dollars of each fishing license fee or combination license fee are deposited into the State Fish Hatchery Maintenance Restricted Account, which together with the earned interest, constitute the revenue source for this restricted fund. The federal funds generally come from the Fish and Wildlife Service, under the Dingell/Johnson program, designed to maintain all fisheries at a standard to meet the public needs.
