"D. Included in the appropriation for this Item is $784,406 in the second year from the general fund to represent the first year of a five-year effort to restore funding to local treasurers offices."


(This amendment provides $784,406 in the second year from the general fund for the following: As a result of budget cuts dating back to the 2002 Session, 53% of all positions in Treasurers' offices are either completely unfunded, as to the 50% state share of position costs, or underfunded. The total annual shortfall is more than $4.2 million. This amendment would begin a five-year process of restoring these funds by providing funding to address 20% of the shortfall in FY20.)
