Wildlife Grant Budget Adjustment
I. Discussion: Staff will present information to ensure that the Wildlife Division’s budget for the Conservation Action Grant program complies with Section 11.043 (c) governing the use of the Parks & Wildlife Conservation and Capital Account.

The program will be funded with a combination of federal State Wildlife Grant funds and Horned Lizard License Plate funds (Conservation and Capital Account).
II. Recommendation: Staff recommends the Texas Parks and Wildlife Commission adopt the following motion:
"The Texas Parks and Wildlife Commission adopts staff recommendation for the use of the Conservation and Capital Account funds for the Conservation Action Grant program."
