Page 296, line 26, strike "$2,376,022" and insert "$2,603,022".

(This amendment restores $227,000 the second year to the general fund for the five regional health planning agencies that was reduced in the introduced budget as part of the productivity savings identified in the Department of Health. The savings is predicated on deregulation of the Certificate of Public Need (COPN) program. Funding for these agencies is authorized at $0.15 per capita. This would continue level funding of these agencies at the level adopted in Chapter 1073 of the 2000 Acts of Assembly, and would amount to funding between $0.10 and $0.11 per capita.)
