Page 421, line 27, strike "$1,013,884,498" and insert "$1,012,832,931".

Page 423, after line 41, insert:

"O. Included in the appropriation for this Item is $3,000,000 in the second year from the general fund for the Department of Corrections to use for initiatives to improve  recruitment and retention of correctional personnel.  Of this amount, $1,051,567 is dedicated towards targeted actions for correctional officers at Augusta Correctional Facility.  The Department shall report on its specific planned uses for this funding to the Governor, the Department of Planning and Budget, and the Chairmen of the House Appropriations and Senate Finance Committees by May 30, 2019."


(This amendment designates $1.1 million of existing funding, which was added to the second year of Chapter 2, 2018 Special Session I, for a targeted salary action for correctional officers assigned to the Augusta Correctional Facility. Chapter 2 added $3.0 million in the second year for unspecified uses towards addressing the Department's high turnover vacancies. Because funding was added in Chapter 2 for this purpose, the additional funding proposed in the introduced budget is not needed.)
