Page 37, line 45, strike "$313,438,399" and insert "$301,990,427".
Page 37, line 45, strike "$341,390,322" and insert "$329,942,350".
Page 37, after line 44, insert:
"O.  Notwithstanding any other provision of law, the Compensation Board shall reduce reimbursements to 95 percent of all amounts approved pursuant to this appropriation, representing an equal across-the-board reduction."

(This amendment provides a 5 percent across-the-board reduction for Financial Assistance to Local Law Enforcement and Financial Assistance to Regional Jail Authorities. However, in calculating the amount of this reduction, prior reductions calculated by the Department of Planning and Budget for turnover and vacancy savings totaling $5.0 million each year were eliminated. Therefore, sheriffs and jails can utilize turnover and vacancy savings, as well as other cost cutting measures, to achieve these reductions.)
