Page 381, after line 4, insert:"M.  Included in appropriation for this item is $1,398,140 the first year and $843,360 the second year from the general fund for the payment of overtime compensation for sworn officers employed by the Department of State Police."

(This amendment redirects the funding included in the Governor's introduced budget for additional state troopers to the payment of overtime compensation for State Police troopers who serve in non-FLSA exempt positions for their hours worked in excess of 40 hours in any seven day period. Currently, the Department of State Police provides these employees with compensatory leave in exchange for any overtime they work. This compensatory leave is capped at 96 hours, after which these troopers must receive overtime pay. Consequently, the department manages troopers' compensatory leave to minimize overtime pay. This results in additional overtime being worked by other officers.)
