Page 126, after line 5, insert:
"3)  It is the intent of the General Assembly to reinstate the Cost of Competing Adjustment for support positions in the 2016-2018 biennial budget."

(This language amendment reinstates the COCA for support positions for the next biennial budget fiscal year 2016-2018. Although a specific cost is not currently available for the future biennium, the associated cost for restoring COCA for support positions in the introduced budget, House Bill 1400 would be about $36.8 million each year. Subsequently, an estimated cost for reinstating the support positions during the next biennium would be approximately between $70 to $80 million.)
