Page 363, line 40, strike "$81,894,599" and insert "$81,794,599".
Page 364, line 1, strike "A" and insert "A.1".
Page 364, line 11, strike "829,930" and insert "729,930".
Page 364, after line 13, insert:
"2.  The Department of Criminal Justice Services shall provide a summary report on federal anti-crime and related grants which will require state general funds for matching purposes during fiscal year 2010 and beyond.  The report shall include a list of each grant and grantee, the purpose of the grant, and the amount of federal and state funds recommended, organized by topical area and fiscal period.  The report shall indicate whether each grant represents a new program or a renewal of an existing grant.  Copies of this report shall be provided to the Chairmen of the Senate Finance and House Appropriations Committees by January 1 of each year."

(This amendment reduces the appropriation for matching funds for federal grants for state agencies by $100,000 the second year from the general fund. It is anticipated that federal anti-crime grants will continue to be reduced, and that greater scrutiny will be required to determine the highest priorities for allocating state matching funds.)
