(This amendment transfers $4.1 million the second year from the general fund from the amounts included in the introduced budget for the Compensation Board for a program to support sheriffs with transportation and custody of temporary detention orders. This amendment moves those funds to the Department of Behavioral Health and Developmental Services (DBHDS), which has a new program that reimburses off-duty law enforcement for these activities. Since this program is temporary the funding is consolidated in the DBHDS program and is expanded to reimburse for over-time and on-duty time.)
