(This amendment provides $4,448,810 the first year and $4,286,599 the second year from the general fund for an additional 139 law enforcement deputy sheriff positions in FY 2015 and 121 positions in FY 2016 to meet the statutory standard of one deputy per 1,500 population. The budget as introduced provided funding for 29 positions the first year and a total of 62 the second year, which is sufficient to meet only 25 percent of the standard the first year and 50 percent the second year. A companion language amendment to Item 73 makes the required adjustment to the authorized position count.)
