Sec. O-1. 12 MRSA §10202, sub-§9, as amended by PL 2005, c. 12, Pt. Z, §1, is further amended to read:
9. Fiscal Stability Program.
The Fiscal Stability Program is established to ensure that the general public and hunters and anglers share the cost of the fish and wildlife conservation programs of the department. To achieve this goal, beginning with the 2008-2009 2010-2011 biennial budget and for each biennial budget thereafter, the biennial budget submitted by the executive branch must include an additional General Fund appropriation of 18% in excess of the department's requested biennial budget.
