(This amendment reduces $1.0 million from the general fund and $620,143 from nongeneral funds in the second year for maintenance payments made for family foster care, adoption subsidies and special needs adoptions. The introduced budget provided funding for a 15 percent rate increase in fiscal year 2009 and a 10 percent increase in fiscal year 2010. This amendment would allow for a rate increase of 15 percent the first year and 8 percent the second year, a reduction of two percent in the second year. In total, payments rates would increase by $4.5 million the first year and $7.0 million the second year from the general fund. A companion amendment in Item 283 makes a similar adjustment for CSA foster care payments.)
