"R.  Included in the approriation for this item, $721,772 the second year from the general fund is provided for a 4.63% salary adjustment for entry level grade 7 deputy sheriffs effective August 1, 2015.  This funding, in addition to the two percent salary adjustment for state supported local employees in Item 467 of this act, which is contingent on revenues, is sufficient to increase the minimum salary for entry level sheriffs for grade 7 deputies to $31,009 effective August 1, 2015."
Page 48, strike lines 1 through 20.

(This amendment adjusts funding included in the introduced budget regarding an increase in the starting salary for entry level sheriffs to reflect the 2% across the board salary increase included in Item 467. The amendment, along with the amendment in Item 467, provides the same raise for grade 7 sheriffs that was proposed in the introduced budget. The amendment does delete language which required localities to automatically provide, and fund, future salary increases when the income levels for the federal SNAP program is increased.)
