(This amendment restores $2.2 million from the general fund and $2.2 million from the nongeneral fund in fiscal year 2022 for local social services departments' (LDSS) to increase minimum salary levels for LDSS family services by 20 percent, and to increase minimum salary levels for benefit program services, self sufficiency services and administrative positions by 15 percent that are currently below the new minimum threshold. These actions should assist in reducing the high turnover and vacancy rates in these LDSS positions.)
