(This amendment eliminates funding, of $5.0 million from the general fund each year, to create a new "Healthy Food Financing Program" which would provide grants to grocery stores locating in underserved areas. The savings from this amendment would be used to offset expenditures proposed in a Item 69 amendment which would provide a $1,000 increase in entry level salaries for deputy sheriffs. )
