(This amendment provides funds to increase payments to foster parents by three percent, effective July 1, 1997. A companion amendment in Item 153 provides the same increase for foster care programs under the Comprehensive Services Act. Also, language is reinstated that requires the Department of Social Services, in cooperation with the Department of Planning and Budget, to establish reasonable and automatic adjustments in the rates for inflation. The automatic adjustment language applies only in years in which salary adjustments are provided to state employees.)
