Now, 1. you'd have a hard time convincing me that reducing the fee by that much reduced any budget by that much. and 2. I thought our fee money wasn't suppose to be going into the General Budget, it was suppose to be paying for the CHL processing only, therefore it should be staying within DPS.
I'd always heard the opposite, that all fees went into the general fund with the DPS LTC folks having a set budget. This is why they couldn't ramp up during the high volume times.
