"Pursuant to the provisions of House Bill 1531, the Office of the Secretary of Transportation shall be eliminated and the functions and powers of the Office of the Secretary of Transportation transferred to the Secretary of Public Safety.  The maximum employment level of the consolidated Secretariat is limited to seven positions, effective July 1, 2004.  The Director, Department of Planning and Budget, shall include implementation of the actions set forth in this item and in Item 463.10 in the Budget Bill submitted to the 2004 Session of the General Assembly."

(This amendment eliminates funding for the Secretary of Transportation. A companion amendment to the Secretary of Public Safety shifts responsibilities and funding to a new merged Secretariat. Proposed action would accrue annual savings of $250,000 and reduce the full time equivalent positions by four positions beginning in fiscal year 2004.)
