Page 378, line 21, strike "$228,036,340" and insert "$234,925,181".
Page 381, after line 4, insert:
"M.  Out of the amounts appropriated for Uniform Patrol Services, $6,888,841 the first year and $6,888,841 the second year from the general fund is appropriated to provide overtime compensation to those troopers who serve in positions that are not exempt from the provisions of the Fair Labor Standards Act and have worked more than 43 hours in any seven day period."

(This amendment provides $6.9 million each year from the general fund to compensate those State Police troopers who serve in non-FLSA exempt positions for their hours worked in excess of 43 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.)
