(This amendment provides a direct appropriation of $113,360 GF in the second year for an accounts receivable system for the Reforestation of Timberlands (RT) program. In the 2015-2016 biennium, the General Assembly gave authority for up to $147,500 be taken from RT to replace the accounting system for RT program. The DOF contract with the vendor to accomplish this failed before the end of FY16. The Commonwealth recovered those funds. It appears that those funds were not restored back into the RT fund. Now, the introduced budget plans to take $113,360 additional funds from the RT program to get an accounting system. The system is needed but the RT Incentive Fund should not have to pay for this system twice as a way to absorb a budget reduction.)
