(This amendment provides $28.5 million from the Public Safety Trust Fund in the second year to fully fund the Department of State Police's Trooper Compensation Plan. The Public Safety Trust Fund is created pursuant to Senate Bill 1211 and is supported by an additional vehicle registration fee of $4.00 per year beginning July 1, 2021. The Fund will be used to establish a sworn pay structure that promotes an inclusive, diverse, and well-qualified workforce by fully addressing compensation issues that negatively impact staffing, retention, and pay compression issues at the Department of State Police.)
