Dec. 16, 2011-- The Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries (LDWF) implemented mid-year budget reductions today of $2.2 million.
The move will focus mainly on supplies and acquisitions and place a hold on purchases including boats, motors, wildlife management area maintenance equipment and planned software purchases for computer equipment upgrades. The department is also reducing and restricting travel for employees.
“LDWF’s spending reductions target fiscal year cost savings that can be implemented while protecting services to our customers,” said Robert Barham, LDWF secretary.
The Department of Wildlife and Fisheries is charged with managing and protecting Louisiana's abundant natural resources. For more information, visit us at www.wlf.louisiana.gov  on Facebook at www.facebook.com/ldwffb  or follow us on Twitter @LDWF.
