Policy Changes

DES Central Services

Adjustments are made to reflect each agency’s anticipated share of charges from the Department of Enterprise Services (DES) for campus rent, utilities, parking, and contracts; capital project surcharges; financing cost recovery; public and historic facilities; real estate services; risk management services; personnel service rates; the Perry Street child care center; small agency services; and the department’s enterprise applications. (Parks Renewal/Stewardship Account - State)

OFM Central Services

Adjustments are made to reflect each agency’s anticipated share of charges from the Office of Financial Management (OFM) for statewide financial applications, One Washington, and other OFM central services. (Parks Renewal/Stewardship Account - State)

Reduce Expenditures Due to I-976

Expenditures from the Snowmobile Account are reduced as a result of less revenue caused by a reduction in snowmobile license fees resulting from Initiative 976, which was approved by voters in the general election. This will result in less snow plowing to access snowmobile trails and less trail grooming. (Snowmobile Account - State)

Lake Sammamish EIS

In collaboration with the City of Issaquah, the commission will prepare an environmental impact statement at Lake Sammamish State Park to identify impacts of the next phase of park development and assist with obtaining regulatory permits. (General Fund - State)

Visitor and Employee Safety

Funding is provided to hire an additional safety officer to reduce risks for visitors, employees and volunteers at all state parks. This funding will also enable the agency to hire a staff person to process worker's compensation claims, which is expected to help injured employees return to work earlier and reduce premiums. (General Fund - State)

No Child Left Inside

Funds are included for additional No Child Left Inside grants for outdoor education and recreation programs that engage youth in experiencing the natural, cultural, ethnic and artistic heritage of Washington state. (Outdoor Education and Recreation - Non-Appropriated)

Protect and Maintain State Parks

This item will increase the presence of park staff at state parks during the spring, summer and fall to improve park visitor experience and satisfaction which directly addresses feedback from recent visitor surveys. It also provides funding for a contract with the Washington Conservation Corps to provide additional crews working on park maintenance. (General Fund - State, Parks Renewal/Stewardship Account - State)

PERS & TRS Plan 1 Benefit Increase

For eligible Public Employees' and Teachers' Retirement Systems Plan 1 members, this item provides an increase of 1.5 percent, up to a maximum of $22 per month. (General Fund - State, Parks Renewal/Stewardship Account - State)

Archives/Records Management

Adjustments are made to reflect each agency’s anticipated share of state archiving and state records center costs from the Secretary of State’s Office. (Parks Renewal/Stewardship Account - State)

Attorney General

Adjustments are made to reflect each agency's anticipated share of legal service charges from the Attorney General’s Office. (Parks Renewal/Stewardship Account - State)
