(This amendment adds language reducing the amount of funding contained in the introduced budget which diverts $0.25 from an increase in $4 for Life Funding for the Department of State Police's med-flight operations. In 2008, the General Assembly increased $4 for Life Funding from $4.00 to $4.25. Funding was to be deposited to the Rescue Squad Assistance Fund (RSAF). This language amendment restores $1.0 million of that proposed reduction to the RSAF. A companion amendment in Item 420 for the Department of State Police restores $1.0 million from the general fund for med-flight which was reduced in the introduced budget.)
