(This amendment reduces funding by $5.5 million the first year and $8.0 million the second year from the general fund for an information technology information system designed to connect government agencies, health care providers, and community-based partners to facilitate referrals for public health and social services. This leaves $2.5 million in fiscal year 2023 to continue the current contract for the system for one additional year. It is expected that the e-referral system will continue beyond fiscal year 2023 with the use of user fees to support its operations.)
