Page 381, after line 4, insert:
"M.  Included in the appropriation for this item is $1,398,140 the first year and $843,360 the second year from the general fund for the Department of State Police to increase the availability of currently sworn officers to provide law enforcement and highway patrol services.  Among the methods to be used for this purpose, the Department of State Police shall consider the use of these funds for the payment of overtime compensation to sworn officers currently employed by the Department of State Police."

(This amendment redirects funding included in the introduced budget for ten additional state troopers to increasing the availability of current state troopers for law enforcement and highway patrol services, through options such as the payment of overtime compensation. This could result in the equivalent of between 11 and 19 additional State Troopers being made available for service.)
