In FY12, Congress directed the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service to spend approximately $1,000,000 for implementation of mandatory operational inspection and decontamination stations at Federally managed or interjurisdictional water bodies considered to be of highest risk, as called for in the February 2010 Quagga—Zebra Mussel Action Plan for Western U.S. Waters. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, as is the rest of the Federal government, is currently operating under the Continuing Appropriations Resolution, 2013 (Pub. L 112-175), which provides funding through March 27, 2013. We would like input from partners in order to maximize benefit from actions funded in FY13.
