(This amendment adds $36.4 million the second year to fund the state's share of a salary increase, including the associated fringe benefit costs, equivalent to 5.0 percent for public school employees funded through the SOQ and other state-funded accounts effective December 1, 2005. This reflects the incremental cost above the $54.8 million in the introduced budget for a salary increase equivalent to 3.0 percent.)
