On page 6, line 24, after "providers." insert the following:
"Amounts appropriated for the encouragement of culturally diverse and low-income center and family home child care provider participation shall be appropriated separately from the other funds appropriated for the department, are the only funds that may be used for the protocol, and may not be used for any other purposes. Funds appropriated for the protocol shall be considered an ongoing program for purposes of future departmental budget requests."

Funds appropriated for the protocol shall be appropriated separately from other funds appropriated for the department, are the only funds that may be used for the protocol, and may not be used for any other purpose.
