The Legislative Budget Commission on Wednesday approved a $1.7 million appropriation to run Weeki Wachee Springs for the remainder of this fiscal year after the attraction becomes a state park on Nov. 1.

State officials projected the park would take in $3 million by the end of the current fiscal year and set aside the money for the period from Nov. 1 through June 30, 2009. The money is coming out of the state park trust fund.
