Item 3-1.01 #4c

Interfund Transfers


Page 240, line 33, strike "$11,140,100" and insert "$5,000,000".


(This amendment reduces the general fund transfer to the Trauma Center Fund by $6.1 million. The introduced budget included an $11.1 million transfer to offset the loss of the revenue from the $100 driver's licenses reinstatement fee that was inadvertently eliminated in the 2019 Session as part of the policy change to no longer suspend driver's licenses due to nonpayment of fines and fees. Due to a certain legal interpretation, the Trauma Center Fund is still receiving revenue in this fiscal year, albeit at a lesser amount. The prior year cash balance in the fund along with current revenue indicates a lesser need for the full transfer. This amendment reduces the transfer but leaves $5.0 million in case of any shortfall in fiscal year 2021.)
