Item 329 #1s

Item 329 #1s

First Year - FY2011 Second Year - FY2012
Health And Human Resources
Social Services, Department of FY2011 $0 FY2012 ($2,500,000) GF
FY2011 $0 FY2012 $2,500,000 NGF

(This amendment reduces $2.5 million GF the second year and replaces it with $2.5 million NGF to reflect rising payments from retained TANF collections that are used to provide resources for child support enforcement. The introduced budget assumes general fund savings of $2.5 million each year in FY 2013 and FY 2014 based on an increase in retained TANF collections; those savings should also be reflected in FY 2012. TANF collections in excess of $100 each month are returned to the child support program if the family is receiving cash assistance. It is the intent of the General Assembly that this item be set out during the enrollment of House Bill 1300.)
