Page 434, line 37, strike "$4,877,490" and insert "$7,223,981".
Page 435, after line 11, insert:
"D.  Out of the amounts provided for Administrative and Support Services, $2,200,000 the second year from the general fund is provided to support the payment of re-enlistment bonuses to those members of the National Guard eligible for re-enlistment who re-enlist for at least two years."

(This amendment provides additional support positions for the Department of Military Affairs and the funding requested by the agency for the continuation of the re-enlistment bonuses provided to National Guard members. The amount provided for the payment of re-enlistment bonuses would provide for payments to 1,100 guardsmen, which represents about 80 percent of all guardsmen that would become eligible for re-enlistment. Payments are made to those guardsmen that re-enlist for at least two years.)
