Page 136, after line 30, insert:

"D.  The Secretary of Education, in collaboration with the Superintendent of Public Instruction, shall examine operations at the Department of Education for alignment with current business needs and propose realignments to maximize collaboration and utilization of existing agency talent in meeting the agency's mission and the needs of the Office of the Secretary of Education."


(This amendment saves $438,000 the second year by deferring an additional three positions in the Secretary of Education's office. In lieu of such funding, the amendment directs the Secretary and Superintendent of Public Instruction to evaluate opportunities to meet workload needs using existing staff at the Department of Education.)
