            State Senator Rich Colburn wants to double the number of Natural Resources Police patrolling Maryland’s waterways.

            The Eastern Shore Republican told the Salisbury Daily Times…that there are not enough police officers to enforce the laws.

            While the state Department of Management and Budget calls the proposal well intended, it says, any such increase in staffing would impact other parts of the state budget.
