Citation Excerpt: S. Rept. 108-341 -- Land Resources.'The Committee recommends $190,211,000 for land resources,... Increases above the request include $750,000 to continue work at the National Center for Invasive Plant Management;... The Committee notes that the funding provided for land resources fully supports the budget request for noxious weed management. The projects funded above are over and above the request and should provide additional capability to the Bureau in its efforts to manage the serious problem of invasive weed control across all ownerships. The Bureau's ongoing commitment to address the tamarisk (salt cedar) problem in New Mexico and other Southwestern States illustrates the benefits of addressing noxious weed infestation to address greater resource management goals given tamarisk's significant impact on water resources. HR 108-792 -- Lands Resources. - Changes to the House level... include increases of $500,000 for the National Center for Invasive and Plant Management...

Citation Comment: Amount was reduced by congressional across-the-board rescissions.
