Page 256, strike lines 9 through 15.
Page 256, after line 15, insert:
"F.  The Department of Social Services, in collaboration with local departments of social services, shall examine and make recommendations on the current situation of food stamp errors.  A report shall be submitted to the Governor and the Chairmen of the House Appropriations and Senate Finance Committees by November 1, 1997."

(This amendment deletes language in the introduced budget that would have required localities to share 40 percent of the cost in correcting food stamp errors. Instead, language is added that directs the state and local departments of social services to investigate and report on the cause of errors.)
