"The Department shall provide a report on the proposed fee structure and the utilization of the fees for the facility to the Secretary of Public Safety and Homeland Security, the Director of the Department of Planning and Budget, and the Chairmen of the Senate Finance and House Appropriations Committees by October 15, 2016."


(This amendment reduces the proposed second year increase for the new Department of State Police training facility at Blackstone by $1.2 million from the general fund and provides a dedicated special fund appropriation of $120,000 in the second year. With this adjustment, the additional funding for the new facility includes $1,198,779 the first year and $1,890,705 the second year from the general fund and nine positions each year, 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.
