Concerning improvements to state parks, and, in connection therewith, making and reducing an appropriation.
2020 Regular Session
Natural Resources & Environment
Bill Summary

The act transfers $1,000,000 from the general fund to the capital construction fund for use by the department of natural resources to develop infrastructure to open a state park on the property surrounding Fishers Peak.

The parks and wildlife commission is instructed to seek, accept, and expend gifts, grants, or donations from private or public sources for the purposes of developing and improving Fishers Peak state park. By December 1, 2020, the commission will submit a report to the general assembly detailing state park funding needs and shortfalls.

The general fund appropriation made in the annual general appropriation act for the 2020-21 state fiscal year to the office of the governor for use by the office of information technology for applications administration is decreased by $1,000,000, thus enabling the transfer of $1,000,000 from the general fund to the capital construction fund. The act appropriates $1,000,000 from the capital construction fund to the department of natural resources for use by the division of parks and wildlife for capital construction related to infrastructure development projects, including conducting any necessary cultural and natural resource studies, at the new Fishers Peak state park in Las Animas county.

(Note: This summary applies to this bill as enacted.)
