(This amendment adjusts the salary increase contained in House Bill 30 for direct care staff in mental health treatment centers. It reduces funding by $23.5 million the second year from the general fund to adjust the salary increases from the 75th percentile of market to the 50th percentile of market, leaving more than $48 million from the general fund for this purpose. Salary increases for direct care staff in state mental health treatment centers will average around 37%. A companion amendment in Item 486 provides funding in the first year from the federal American Rescue Act Plan.)
