Fiscal Detail and Notes
This amendment reduces the General Fund appropriations in the bill by $178,403 in fiscal year 2013-14 and $91,196 in fiscal year 2014-15 by eliminating funding for one Education Specialist II position and delaying certain provisions of the bill until July 1, 2014, which allows delaying the start date for one Education Specialist III position until July 1, 2014.  
As amended, this bill includes a General Fund appropriation of $91,730 in fiscal year 2014-15 to the School Finance and Operations Program within the Department of Education for one Education Specialist III position and related all other costs to support the anticipated increase in workload associated with the process of municipalities withdrawing from regional school units.  This fiscal note assumes that the increased workload will subside after fiscal year 2016-17 and this position will end.
