Re: HB 2083
Some of the same pols currently pounding the PGC over deer and PILT fees, would probably love to be able to snatch-up funds that are now untouchable.
While some yap about combining agencies "like other states", a quick review of many of those states shows that their funding is usually at the mercy of their politicians.
Several states' wildlife agencies have had their funding cut, so the money can be spent on non-wildlife programs.
Remember when Rendell stripped money from the budgets of DEP and DCNR, so he could try to balance his state budgets? Imagine how happy he would've been to also raid the coffers of the PGC back then, were he able to have done so?
