New data from United States Forest Service ecologists show that for every dollar spent on controlled small-scale burning, forest thinning, and the training of fire-management personnel,seven dollars are saved that would have been spent on extinguishing big fires.
My question is what does "that"(which is underlined) modifies.Whether it is acceptable to use that after an independent clause seven dollars are saved.If i am not mistaken "that would have been spent on extinguishing big fires" modifies seven dollars.why cant the sentence be in this following manner
"seven dollars that would have been spent on extinguishing big fires are saved."
Pls help
Regards
Anand
