(This amendment allows for the provision of $4.7 million each year from the general fund in new School Resource Officer Incentive Grants, as well as reflecting ongoing grant obligations totaling $18.4 million the first year and $15.7 million the second year. Including both new and ongoing grant obligations, grant spending by the School Resource Officer Incentive Grant program totaled $18.7 million in fiscal year 2024, substantially lower than the $27.2 million provided for the program in that year. The amendment also removes language from Chapter 2, 2022 Special Session I, erroneously kept in House Bill 30, as introduced, which was previously included to waive all matching requirements for School Resource Officer Incentive Grants in fiscal year 2023.)
