(This amendment provides $300,000 each year from the general fund and three forensic scientist positions to process physical evidence recovery kits, to reduce the backlog of unprocessed kits and to allow sexual assault cases to be processed more quickly in the future. These kits collect DNA evidence used to document, investigate, and prosecute cases of sexual assault.)
