(This amendment provides $6.5 million the first year and $13.0 million the second year from the general fund for the provisions of House Bill 102 and Senate Bill 356, which increase the statutory caps for court-appointed attorney pay. The additional funds are appropriated to the Criminal Fund, from which court-appointed attorney costs are paid. A companion amendment to the Supreme Court provides funding in the first year to implement system changes to accommodate the increases.)
