Explanation

(This amendment provides funding for targeted salary actions for correctional officers and correctional officer seniors at DOC, and DJJ. The funding calculation assumes increased starting salaries for vacant positions within the DOC but also assumes a reduction in overtime expenditures for DOC of $1.5 million in fiscal year 2019 and $2.0 million in fiscal year 2020 as the salary increase, and the $3.0 million in funding provided for operating support is intended to address turnover and vacancy concerns for the Department.)
