Technical: Reappropriation Authority for DSS Licensing System Replacement (language only)

Item 359 #1c

Item 359 #1c

Health and Human Resources
Department of Social Services


Page 440, after line 43, insert:

"K. Out of this appropriation, $125,000 the first year and $125,000 the second year from the general fund and $125,000 the first year and $125,000 the second year from nongeneral funds shall be appropriated to fund the replacement of the agency licensing system. Any unexpended general fund balance as of June 30, 2021, related to this paragraph shall be reappropriated to continue replacement of the agency licensing system.”


(This amendment sets out the funding included in the administrative budget for replacing the Department of Social Services' licensing system. Language allows for any unexpended funding to be reappropriated in fiscal year 2022 for this purpose. The COVID-19 public health emergency has resulted in delays in replacing the system in fiscal year 2021. A companion amendment in Item 357 allows for similar authority for system funding included in agency's budget for the regulation of adult and child welfare facilities.)
