(This amendment reduces funding for foster care and adoption subsidy payments which were inadvertently included in the introduced budget in fiscal year 2020 as a cost of living adjustment. The budget requires that these rates be increased in the year following a salary increase provided for state employees. State employees were given a pay raise effective in their July 1, 2019 paycheck. House Bill 30 provides a cost of living adjustment for these subsidy payments in fiscal year 2021 to reflect the fiscal year 2020 increase for state employee compensation.)
