California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger included $76.7 million for the Department of Boating and Waterways in his proposed $143.4 billion budget for the fiscal year, beginning in July, The Log newspaper reports.


That's almost $11 million less than it received this fiscal year.


More than $12 million was cut from the funds earmarked for construction and improvement of public marinas. The governor's proposal calls for $12.07 million for the next fiscal year, according to the report.


Other expenditures for the department in the governor's proposed 2007-`08 budget include: $6 million for loans to construct and improve marinas, $12.9 million for grants to construct and improve boat-launching facilities and $6.14 million for public access boating sites on state lands.


There also is $10.03 million in federal funds for a variety of boating safety, education and access programs.


The money for the boating facility projects funded by the DBW is derived largely from its share of boating gasoline taxes and vessel registration fees, and from loan repayments.
