(This amendment eliminates $300,320 the second year from the general fund for two additional new positions in the Department of Education's Central Office. The introduced budget had added six positions to the existing 144.0 positions funded with general fund revenue along with the existing 185.5 positions funded with federal grant revenues. This will leave 4.0 new positions, for a revised total of 333.5 positions in Central Office. This amendment removes funding proposed in House Bill 1700 as introduced for new positions in the Department. The Committee budget funding levels were limited to the additional dollars available pursuant to the economic reforecast presented in December, identified programmatic savings, and revenues generated by legislation expanding the collection of sales tax attributable to internet sales. All revenues attributable to the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (TCJA) are captured in the Taxpayer Relief Fund and the Revenue Reserve Fund in Item 475.10. This required removing approximately $1.2 billion in spending compared to House Bill 1700 as introduced.)
