(This amendment adds $1.5 million the second year from the general fund to fully fund salary adjustments in the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner. The introduced budget provided about one-half of the need in fiscal year 2024. This would bring the funding up to almost $3.0 million. Currently, the office is experiencing a high level of vacancy and turnover due to the competitive salaries offered by other states for these positions.)
