Page 244, after line 23, insert:
"L. Out of this appropriation, in addition to the current allocations in subprogram 49005, an additional $350,000 in the first year and $350,000 in the second year from the federal Social Services Block Grant shall be allocated to provide adult companion services for low-income elderly and disabled adults."

(This amendment requires the reallocation of federal block grant funds to begin to restore adult companion services to fiscal year 1996 levels, for services reduced as the result of new federally mandated hourly wage changes that occurred on October 1, 1996, and September 1, 1997.)
