(This amendment reduces $44,575 from the general fund each year related to the funding provided for the decedent transport fee. The introduced budget included $700,000 each year related to the costs of increasing the decedent transport fee from $100 to $250. This amendment revises the cost estimate based on prior workload and spending on decedent transports. The Office of the Chief Medical Examiner pays the fee to companies to transport deceased individuals (i.e from the scene of a traffic accident.) The fee was last increased in 1980.)
