Details are scarce from last night's budget deal, but some news reports say the revenue included from State Forest leasing for natural gas drilling in the final agreement is $65 million not $100 million. This change still means about 90,000 acres of State Forest will be put up for lease this fiscal year.
The same news reports have total withdrawals from the DCNR Oil and Gas Fund at $208 million for FY 2009-10, rather than $143 million, and $180 million in FY 2010-11 rather than $125 million.
