Research reserve funding restored by Senate panel

March 27, 2014

The Senate Finance Subcommittee on Fish and Game last week restored $175,000 in operating funds for the Kachemak Bay Research Reserve. The budget now goes to the Senate Finance Committee.

That committee held hearings last week at the Homer Legislative Information Office on the Operating Budget, House Bills 266 and 267. If the research reserve funding remains when the vote goes to the senate floor, a conference committee would need to meet to resolve differences with the House budget bill.

George Matz, chair of the Kachemak Bay Research Reserve, said the hearing had good local support.

“We are hopeful that support will continue all the way through the conference committee,” he said.
