(This amendment provides $3.1 million over the biennium from the general fund to increase salaries for residential specialists at the Department of Juvenile Justice. This amendment would increase the starting salary by 25 percent, adjust the minimum salary for supervisory staff accordingly, and provide "longevity" increases based on years of service. This amendment aligns with the compensation actions for Department of Corrections security staff included in the introduced budget.)
