Fiscal Detail and Notes
This amendment reduces the General Fund appropriations in the commitee amendment to the Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) by $433,310 in fiscal year 2019-20 and by $396,845 in fiscal year 2020-21 due to the removal of the requirements that the DHHS provide at least one week of training to new employees engaged in adult protective services (APS) and that the ratio of supervisory positions to caseworker positions in APS and child protective services is identical. As amended, the bill will still have appropriations of $805,000 annually beginning in fiscal year 2019-20.
