after line 27, insert:
"MM. On or before June 30 each year, the State Comptroller shall transfer $10,518,587 the first year and $10,518,587 the second year to the general fund from the $2.00 increase in the annual vehicle registration fee from the special emergency medical services fund contained in the Department of Health’s Emergency Medical Services Program (40200)."


Explanation
(This amendment transfers $10.5 million each year from the special emergency medical services fund to the general fund. A companion amendment to Item 3-6.00 (Adjustments and Modifications to Fees) increases the annual vehicle registration fee known as $4 for Life from $4.25 to $6.25 generating $12.6 million annually. Of the increase $2.1 million will be transferred to the Department of State Police to operate the med-flight program, eliminating the need to transfer funds from the Rescue Squad Assistance Fund to State Police as proposed in the introduced budget. A separate amendment to Item 281 (Emergency Medical Services) eliminates the proposed transfer.)
