(This amendment strikes language in the introduced budget that would require localities to pay for errors in overpayment of public assistance benefits. Currently, localities are charged for agency-caused errors. The language in the introduced budget would require localities to repay the cost of client-caused errors, currently the responsibility of state and federal governments. A companion amendment in Item 383 adds for local administration of benefit programs that were removed in the introduced budget as the local share for client-caused payment errors.)
