Page 112, line 47, strike "$5,919,246,268" and insert "$5,928,646,896".
Page 124, line 31, after "in the first year" insert:
"6.98 percent in the second year".

(This amendment provides $9.4 million the second year for funded SOQ support positions at about 7.0 percent for the nine divisions in Planning District Eight (PD8) that receive full COCA funding and the nine surrounding partial COCA funding school divisions at about 1.8 percent. The proposed amended budget, House Bill 1500, eliminated funding for these positions in the second year, which are funded at 9.83 percent in the adopted budget (Chapter 3) for PD8 divisions and at 25 percent of the fully funded divisions, or roughly 2.46 percent. This amendment will restore approximately seventy five percent of funding contained in the current adopted budget.)
