Page 427, line 32, strike "and $1,045,375" the second year".
Page 427, line 34, after "operations" insert:
"The Department of State Police shall determine the feasibility of recovering costs for its med-flight operations through Medicare, Medicaid and private insurers.  The Department shall examine the feasibility of second-party billing through hospitals receiving patients or through the creation of an independent billing authority."

(This amendment restores $1,045,375 the second year from the general fund for Med-Flight operations, thereby eliminating the transfer of nongeneral funds from the Rescue Squad Assistance Fund for this program.)
