Your Committee on Finance, to which was referred S.B. No. 3063, S.D. 2, H.D. 1, entitled:
"A BILL FOR AN ACT RELATING TO THE ENVIRONMENT,"
begs leave to report as follows:
The purpose of this bill is to support programs of the Department of Land and Natural Resources (DLNR) that benefit the environment by establishing a program to develop environmentally-themed products for sale to the public and from which the revenues are to be deposited into the Natural Area Reserve Fund.
