(This amendment provides $112,257 the first year and $224,514 the second year from the general fund to restore proposed cuts in fiscal years 2015 and 2016 to the long-term employment support services (LTESS) program for individuals with disabilities. LTESS provides a full array of employment support services to help individuals with significant disabilities maintain employment. In fiscal year 2015, the LTESS program received $5.1 million in funding which serves 2,925 individuals. Recent budget cuts reduced funding by $112,257 each year resulting in a reduction of 100 individuals to be served by the program.)
