Interfund Transfers

Page 506, line 10, strike "$2,000,000" and insert "$3,000,000".

(This amendment transfers an additional $1 million in balances from the Department of Mental Health, Mental Retardation, and Substance Abuse Services to the general fund, anticipated as a result of additional Medicaid reimbursement. A companion amendment in Item 335 directs the Department of Medical Assistance Services to eliminate the upper limit on payments to state-operated mental health and mental retardation facilities, in recognition of the additional costs that will be incurred in meeting U.S. Justice Department settlements on patient care.)
