(This amendment provides $800,000 from the general fund the second year to fund Sterilization payments to victims of the past state-sanctioned practice. The $400,000 provided for FY 2016 has been expended. This amendment adds $800,000 so the agency can continue to make payments sooner than July 1. The department estimates that $1.2 million should cover all potential costs. A separate action in SB 30 removes the $800,000 from the general fund provided in the biennial budget for this purpose.)
