(This technical amendment moves an appropriation between services areas within a program and will have no impact on agency operations or services. The Department of Social Services (DSS) currently expends all local DSS appropriations from a single service area (46010), thereby creating a single pool for local dollars. The introduced budget attempted to consolidate all appropriation from the two separate service areas (46003 and 46006) into the new one so that the Appropriation Act would reflect agency operations. However, a portion of the local funding ($21.6 million) left in service area (46003) was not moved into the single pool (46010). This technical change is necessary so the budget is transparent and the total support for eligibility operations is not understated.)
