The budget for DEQ decreased by about $9.1 million in the final version of HB1 from $113.3 million in the existing Executive Budget for FY 00. The largest portion of this decrease came about from a drop of over $8.9 million in Statutory Dedications, due largely to a reduction in the waste tire and motor fuels funds to reflect projected needs for FY 01. This department had a slight increase of 3 T.O. positions.
