"E. Out of the appropriation for this Item is included $317,400 the first year and $317,400 the second year from the general fund for an internship and fellowship program based in the Office of the Governor. The purpose of this program is to pay student-trainees and to support the further growth and development of such programs in the Commonwealth. These programs are established to increase equity in and diversification of state employment, to develop future state leaders, and to recruit and retain talent so as to ensure a strong state workforce. The Governor's Fellows program shall be allocated $103,800 each year, and the Governor's Internship program shall be allocated $213,600 each year. Any balances remaining from the appropriation identified in this paragraph shall be brought forward and made available to support the Governor's Fellows and the Governor's Internship programs in the subsequent fiscal year.  The Department of Planning and Budget is authorized to transfer amounts from the appropriation in this paragraph to applicable state agencies as required to execute the purposes of this paragraph."


(This amendment transfers from the Department of Human Resource Management to the Office of the Governor the proposed new funding of $213,600 GF per year for paid interns in the Governor's Internship Program and $103,800 for paid Governor's Fellows within the Office of the Governor. A companion amendment in Item 85 removes the program from the Department of Human Resource Management.)
