Page 97, line 15, strike "$5,754,856,472" and insert "$5,809,472,977".
Page 101, after line 32, insert:
"14.  The Department of Education is instructed to use the inflation factors included as part of the 2012-14 technical re-benchmarking budget as presented to the Board of Education in July 2011 in the calculation of non-personal support costs."

(This amendment restores funding to update the FY 2010 base year non-personal costs up to the beginning of FY 2013, reflecting an average rate of 3.96 percent over two years. Typically, as part of the re-benchmarking process, the Department of Education updates non-personal costs for inflation factors to bring the base year expenditures up to the start of the new biennium. However, the Governor eliminated this update in his proposed biennial budget.)
