Page 194, line 17, strike "($271,964,163)" and insert "($271,689,065)".
Page 194, after line 25 insert:
"A.2.  The general fund savings to the Department of Health shall be reduced from $6,346,784 to $6,246,784 to restore general fund support for sickle cell services."
Page 209, line 41, strike "$50,000" and insert "$100,000".

(This amendment reverses a reduction of $100,000 GF that is used for grants to community-based programs to address sickle cell disease ($50,000) and agency operations ($50,000). The introduced budget reduced funding by $100,000 in FY 2008.)
