Page 229, following line 50, insert:
"R.  The Department shall provide full medical assistance services to noncitizens ineligible for Medicaid because of alienage pursuant to the Personal Responsibility and Work Opportunity Reconciliation Act of 1996, Public Law No. 104-193, who (i) are under age 19 and (ii) would be eligible for full Medicaid benefits if the alien requirements prior to the passage of Public Law No. 104-103 were still in effect."

(This amendment continues medical services to immigrant children with state funds, now that they are no longer eligible for Medicaid under new federal welfare reform laws.)
