(This amendment provides $76,125 the second year from the general fund to eliminate a proposed fee increase for the initial license, annual license renewal, and re-issuance fees for hospices included in the introduced budget. The proposed fees would increase these licensure costs by 30 percent and is not sustainable for small, not-for-profit, community-based hospices. Further, a proposed re-issuance fee of $325 exceeds the amount of labor required to make appropriate changes in records.)
