Joint Budget Committee. The bill repeals 2 transfers from the
severance tax operational fund:
  • The requirement that $500,000 of the core departmental
programs appropriation to the division of reclamation,
mining, and safety in the department of natural resources
be annually transferred to the abandoned mine reclamation

fund; and
  • The requirement that $127,000 be transferred to a special
account in the general fund that is used by the mined land
reclamation board. This annual transfer is currently one of
the transfers to the natural resources and energy grant
programs that only occurs after funding for the core
departmental programs and a reserve requirement.
As state money will no longer be transferred to the abandoned
mine reclamation fund, the section containing it and another one with
related definitions are repealed on July 1, 2023. The state treasurer will
transfer any money in the fund on June 30, 2023, to the severance tax
operational fund.
