(This amendment eliminates language in the budget requiring that $400,000 in nongeneral funds from the Rescue Squad Assistance Fund (RSAF) be set aside for the purchase of 12-lead EKG monitors. The RSAF currently approves grants in excess of $1.0 million for the purchase of these monitors. The RSAF will continue to approve grants for the 12-lead monitors as they are presented but stakeholders feel that budgetary language requiring this use of the fund is no longer necessary. This amount of funding will remain in the RSAF but not be designated expressly for the 12-lead program.)
