(This amendment provides $5,300,000 the second year from the general fund to increase the total amount of state funding for localities with police departments, so that the percentage increase in the total amount of state aid is consistent with the projected percentage increase in total general fund revenue collections for the same period. The budget as introduced anticipates general fund revenue growth to be 3.1 percent in fiscal year 2016 over fiscal year 2015. This growth rate applied to state aid for localities with police departments equates to an additional $5,300,000. The budget as introduced proposes to level fund the program in each year of the biennium.)
