"U. In addition to the salary increase authorized in paragraph S. of this item, the appropriation for this item includes $24,602,490 from the general fund the second year to provide an additional one percent merit based salary adjustment for state employees listed in paragraph S. of this item, except for faculty at institutions of higher education, effective June 10, 2019. Agency directors shall have the authority to provide individual employees a merit increase in excess of one percent provided the total cost of all merit increases for each agency does not exceed the one percent average."  


(This amendment provides funding for an additional 1% merit based salary increase for state employees effective June 10, 2019. A portion of the funding for the merit based increase comes from eliminating the proposal in the introduced budget to have the state pay the employee share of the increase in health insurance premiums for the projected fiscal year 2019 and fiscal year 2020 premium increases.)
