(This amendment reduces the proposed second year increase for the new Department of State Police training facility at Blackstone by $600,000 from the general fund and four positions and provides a dedicated special fund appropriation of $226,800 the second year. With this adjustment, the additional funding for the new facility includes $1,198,779 and nine positions the first year and $2,490,705 and 14 positions the second year from the general fund, plus the dedicated special funds in the second year. This amendment also removes a proposed exemption from the normal requirements of the Administrative Process Act concerning the fees to be charged for the use of the new facility by local and other law enforcement agencies. It is anticipated that the dedicated special funds from fees generated through the use of the facility will help support some of the additional costs of operating the facility. Finally, this amendment calls for a report on the proposed fee structure and the use of the dedicated special revenues.)
