Page 329, line 32, strike "$18,373,574" and insert "$17,123,574".

(This amendment eliminates $1,250,000 from the general fund the first year, which was included in the budget as introduced to pay the local match for a new federal grant program. The new Staffing for Adequate Firefighters and Emergency Response (SAFER) program provides federal grants to localities to hire additional first responders. The required local match rate increases to 100 percent over the period of the grant award. No general funds were included in the introduced budget for the increased second year match requirement.)
