Citation Excerpt: Conf: "In habitat conservation, changes to the House passed level for partners for fish and wildlife projects are as follows: Georgia stream bank restoration -500" "In habitat conservation programs, there is a net decrease of $1,333,000. For the Partners for Fish and Wildlife program, there are increases of $2,000,000 for invasive species control (non-specific), $1,400,000 for Washington regional fisheries enhancement groups, $750,000 for the Walla Walla Basin HCP, $500,000 for Walla Walla Basin fish passage and salmon recovery efforts, $180,000 for technical assistance at the New Jersey Meadowlands; $800,000 for restoration in the Tunkhannock and Bowman's Creek watersheds in Pennsylvania, $1,000,000 for fish passage in the west branch of the Susquehanna River, $1,000,000 for Georgia streambank restoration, and $700,000 for Willapa Bay spartina grass control. These increases are offset by decreases of $1,083,000 for Tamarisk control, $5,225,000 for the Upper Klamath Basin restoration program, and $4,000,000 for the High Plains partnership. In project planning, increases include $300,000 to restore the Metropolitan Greenspaces program, $170,000 to restore the base program, and $100,000 to continue operations at the Cedar City, UT ecological services office. In coastal programs there are increases of $175,000 for the Hood Canal Salmon Enhancement Group, $200,000 for Long Live the Kings, and $300,000 to restore funding for the Tampa and Florida panhandle field offices. These increases are offset partially by decreases of $400,000 for regional offices support and $200,000 for Washington office support."
