(This amendment adds $1.0 million from the general fund each year for an adjustment for brain injury services contracts. Current contracts have not been adjusted to account for market changes in starting salaries and as a result, starting salaries for individuals providing these services are below market rates, resulting in turnover and vacancies among all service providers. This increase would bring salaries in line with market demands.)
