       The Committee on Environmental Preservation and Conservation
       (Altman) recommended the following:
    1         Senate Amendment 
    3         Delete lines 102 - 168
    4  and insert:
    5         2. Is consistent with an adopted land management plan;
    6         3. Does not adversely impact the land’s conservation
    7  purpose; and
    8         4. Does not adversely limit recreational use.
   10  Lands acquired by the state as a gift, through donation, or by
   11  any other conveyance for which no consideration was paid, and
   12  which are not managed for conservation, outdoor resource-based
   13  recreation, or archaeological or historic preservation under a
   14  land management plan approved by the board of trustees are not
   15  conservation lands.
   16         (5) Each manager of conservation lands shall submit to the
   17  Division of State Lands a land management plan at least every 10
   18  years in a form and manner prescribed by rule by the board and
   19  in accordance with the provisions of s. 259.032. Each manager of
   20  conservation lands shall also update a land management plan
   21  whenever the manager proposes to add new facilities or make
   22  substantive land use or management changes that were not
   23  addressed in the approved plan, or within 1 year of the addition
   24  of significant new lands. Each manager of nonconservation lands
   25  shall submit to the Division of State Lands a land use plan at
   26  least every 10 years in a form and manner prescribed by rule by
   27  the board. The division shall review each plan for compliance
   28  with the requirements of this subsection and the requirements of
   29  the rules established by the board pursuant to this section. All
   30  land use plans, whether for single-use or multiple-use
   31  properties, shall include an analysis of the property to
   32  determine if any significant natural or cultural resources are
   33  located on the property. Such resources include archaeological
   34  and historic sites, state and federally listed plant and animal
   35  species, and imperiled natural communities and unique natural
   36  features. If such resources occur on the property, the manager
   37  shall consult with the Division of State Lands and other
   38  appropriate agencies to develop management strategies to protect
   39  such resources. Land use plans shall also provide for the
   40  control of invasive nonnative plants and conservation of soil
   41  and water resources, including a description of how the manager
   42  plans to control and prevent soil erosion and soil or water
   43  contamination. Land use plans submitted by a manager shall
   44  include reference to appropriate statutory authority for such
   45  use or uses and shall conform to the appropriate policies and
   46  guidelines of the state land management plan. Plans for managed
   47  areas larger than 1,000 acres shall contain an analysis of the
   48  multiple-use potential of the property, which analysis shall
   49  include the potential of the property to generate revenues to
   50  enhance the management of the property. Additionally, the plan
   51  shall contain an analysis of the potential use of private land
   52  managers to facilitate the restoration or management of these
   53  lands. In those cases where a newly acquired property has a
   54  valid conservation plan that was developed by a soil and
   55  conservation district, such plan shall be used to guide
   56  management of the property until a formal land use plan is
   57  completed.
   58         (b) Short-term and long-term management goals shall include
   59  measurable objectives for the following, as appropriate:
   60         1. Habitat restoration and improvement.
   61         2. Public access and recreational opportunities.
   62         3. Hydrological preservation and restoration.
   63         4. Sustainable forest management.
   64         5. Exotic and invasive species maintenance and control.
   65         6. Capital facilities and infrastructure.
   66         7. Cultural and historical resources.
   67         8. Imperiled species habitat maintenance, enhancement,
   68  restoration, or population restoration.
   69         9. Preservation of low-impact agriculture.
   70         (e) Land management plans are to be updated every 10 years
   71  on a rotating basis. Each updated land management plan must
   72  identify conservation lands under the plan, except land managed
   73  as a state park or preserve, in part or in whole:
