(This amendment reduces funding for new helicopters and positions for pilots. The pilots will not be hired until the October 2000 Academy begins, resulting in a reduction of $100,000 the first year. The lease/purchase of the helicopters was based on a seven-year lease. The revised funding is based on a ten-year lease that is consistent with minimal life expectancies of helicopters.)
