Page 81, after line 17, insert:
Pursuant to the provisions of House Bill 1529, the Office of the Secretary of Administration shall be eliminated and the functions and powers of the Office of the Secretary of Administration transferred to the Secretary of Finance.  The maximum employment level of the consolidated Secretariat is limited to 15 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 297.10 in the Budget Bill submitted to the 2004 Session of the General Assembly."

(This amendment eliminates funding for the Secretary of Administration. A companion amendment to the Secretary of Finance shifts responsibilities and funding to the new merged Secretariat. Proposed action would reduce the full-time equivalent positions by three positions in the combined Secretariat beginning in fiscal year 2004.)
