(This amendment reduces $203,148 NGF the second year from the federal TANF block grant reflecting the reduction of benefit payments to individuals who fail or refuse to participate in drug screening and testing as a condition of receiving TANF. A separate amendment to Item 307 (Medicaid Program Services) provides funding for substance abuse treatment costs for TANF recipients. Another amendment to Item 338 (Financial Assistance for Local Social Services Staff) includes funding for the administrative costs of drug screening and testing of TANF recipients. This amendment is contingent upon the final passage of SB 721.)
