(This amendment designates services for which TANF grant can be expended in addition to core benefits and block grant transfers. The amendment also revises the TANF balance in fiscal year 2003 and fiscal year 2004, based on changes to the proposed TANF spending. A larger balance is left in each year as a contingency against increases in the TANF caseload over the biennium. The introduced bill identified a balance of $17.5 million in fiscal year 2003 and $0 in fiscal year 2004. This revised spending plan provides a balance of $18.4 million in fiscal year 2003 and $4.2 million in fiscal year 2004.)
