(This amendment eliminates language in the introduced budget stating the intent of the General Assembly that localities shall share accountability for the federal penalties and reinvestment requirements and shall be rewarded for performance improvements. Localities are currently charged for agency-caused errors in overpayments of food stamp benefits. Language in the introduced budget would require localities to pay the cost of client-caused errors, which are presently borne by the state and federal governments.)
