The introduced budget included funding for a 15 percent increase the first year and a 10 percent increase the second year. This amendment reduces the second year increase to 8 percent. A companion amendment in Item 342 makes a similar adjustment for federal Title IV-E foster care payments, adoption subsidies and special needs adoptions.)
