(This amendment eliminates $1,250,000 the first year from the general fund for the SAFER program. The SAFER program is a new federal grant program which will provide assistance to localities to hire additional firefighters. The introduced budget included these funds for the purpose of paying the local match for this program for the first year only. The required local matching percentage would have increased to 100 percent over the next four years.)
