Page 21, following line 10, insert:
State assistance for Clerks of the Circuit Courts shall be distributed during FY 2013 in twelve equal monthly installments to the existing offices of the Clerks of the Circuit Court.  Funding shall be provided on a block grant basis beginning in FY 2014.  The Executive Secretary of the Supreme Court shall develop policies and procedures, including performance standards for the Clerks of the Circuit Court, prior to the implementation of the block grant.  A report on the proposed implementation of the block grant shall be provided to the Governor and the Chairmen of the Senate Finance and House Appropriations Committee by December 1, 2012."

(This is one of a series of amendments that reorganizes the Compensation Board. This amendment adds funding for state aid to Clerks of the Circuit Court to the Office of the Executive Secretary of the Supreme Court, with the intent that the state aid be converted into a block grant in FY 2014. A companion amendment to Item 73 transfers these funds from the Compensation Board.)
