Except for land acquired by approval of the Open Space Council or approved through
a bond and capital improvements act, land shall not be purchased by the Department
of Natural Resources and Environmental Control without prior approval of the Cochairs
of the Joint Legislative Committee on the Capital Improvement Program; provided,
however, that the Department is not prohibited from conducting studies, surveys or
other contractual arrangements that would normally precede land acquisition procedures. The Department is also required to provide cost estimates to the cochairs of the
Joint Finance Committee and the Bond Bill Committee; these estimates will include
costs to develop infrastructure, and the number of positions needed to maintain the
land and the associated personnel costs.
