(This amendment reduces nongeneral funds transferred to Emergency Medical Services from the surcharge on motor vehicle registrations passed during the 2002 General Assembly ($4-for-Life). The introduced budget transferred $12,754,625 each year in $4-for-Life funds; however, the transfer was contingent upon passage of the Governor's tax proposal. This amendment retains $5.8 million each year from the additional $4-for-Life funds for Emergency Medical Services. A companion amendment in Item 3-6.02 transfers $6.9 million each year from the surcharge to the general fund.)
