Page 204, after line 8, insert:

"R. On or before June 30, 2020, the Director of the Department of Planning and Budget shall authorize the reversion to the general fund of $47,000,000 in unexpended general fund year end balances from budget program 722 originally appropriated in Item 476.10 of Chapter 1283 of the 2020 Acts of Assembly."


(This amendment reverts $47 million in unallocated general fund balances which were originally appropriated for the emergency response to the COVID pandemic. The funding is not needed due to the availability of federal COVID relief funds.)
