Page 303, line 15, strike "$56,869,640" and insert "$57,159,907".
Page 304, after line 31, insert:
"H.  It is the intent of the General Assembly that the adult foster care reimbursement rate shall be increased annually by the same percentage as the auxiliary grant rate for residents of adult care residences."

(This amendment provides funds for an increase in the adult foster care maximum reimbursement rate from $508 per month ($584 for Northern Virginia) to $645 ($742 for Northern Virginia). This increase is the same percentage amount as a companion amendment for the auxiliary grant rate. The language provides for an automatic adjustment for inflation in the adult foster care program, the same as the automatic adjustment in the auxiliary grant for persons in adult care residences.)
