     The effective dates of Parts IA and IB of Act 73 of 2011 are extended until the effective date for appropriations made in a general appropriations act for fiscal year 2012-2013, after which appropriations made pursuant to this joint resolution are deemed to have been made pursuant to the general appropriations act for fiscal year 2012-2013.

           (5)      Notwithstanding any other provision of Act 73 of 2011, there is appropriated an additional $51,528,219 to the Budget and Control Board for Employee Insurance so as not to increase the premium paid by employees. This provision shall remain in effect until the effective date for appropriations made in a general appropriations act for fiscal year 2012-2013.
           (6)      Notwithstanding any other provision of Act 73 of 2011, there is appropriated an amount sufficient to increase the compensation of a Class I certified law enforcement officers by two percent. This provision only applies to eligible officers earning less than fifty thousand dollars a year at SLED, the Department of Public Safety, the Department of Probation, Pardon and Parole, the Department of Natural Resources, and the Forestry Commission. This provision takes effect for the pay period beginning July 1, 2012. This provision shall remain in effect until the effective date for appropriations made in a general appropriations act for fiscal year 2012-2013.
