(This amendment provides $7,366,646 the second year from the general fund to address salary compression for sworn positions and to add 11 State Trooper positions. This represents the first year of a ten-year plan to address compression and add a total of 701 positions, including 595 sworn and 106 civilian positions between FY 2016 and FY 2025. Funding to support this plan is proposed to come from an annual increase of $1.25 per year for ten years in vehicle registration fees, effective July 1 each year, beginning on July 1, 2015 and continuing through July 1, 2024, pursuant to Senate Bill 754. This represents a total vehicle registration fee increase of $12.50, spread over ten years, to address salary compression and staffing in the Department of State Police. This amendment is contingent upon passage of Senate Bill 754.
