(This amendment reduces $238,550 the first year and $766,968 the second year from the general fund to reflect rising payments from retained TANF collections that are used to provide resources for child support enforcement. The introduced budget includes $2.8 million the first year and $4.1 million the second year from the general fund to offset a decline in retained TANF collections that have fallen due to the economic recession. TANF collections in excess of $100 each month are returned to the child support program if the family is receiving cash assistance. In the first six months of fiscal year 2011, TANF collections have risen 5.0 percent compared to the previous year. No increase in TANF collections is projected in fiscal year 2011, but the amendment assumes 3.0 percent growth in TANF collections in fiscal year 2012, resulting in a diminished need for general fund resources in the child support division.)
