Page 6, line 4, strike "$30,104,384" and insert "$26,104,384".
Page 6, line 38, strike "8,200,000" and insert "4,200,000".

(This amendment reduces the appropriation for waivers for court-appointed counsel for indigent defendants in criminal cases by $4,000,000 the second year from the general fund. This adjustment reflects the expected level of expenditures based on the experience of the first half of the fiscal year. The Supreme Court expects the expenditures for waivers to be only $4.2 million in fiscal year 2008 rather than the $8.2 million which was appropriated by the 2007 General Assembly.)
