Item 151 #5c

Education: Elementary and Secondary
Comprehensive Services for At-Risk Youth and Families

Page 142, after line 30, insert:
"f.  The Office of Comprehensive Services shall revise allocations to localities in the second year, using general funds in the supplemental pool.  For purposes of revised allocations, the Office shall assume that coverage of therapeutic foster care services and residential services under the Medicaid program shall begin January 1, 2000."

(This amendment instructs the Office of Comprehensive Services to revise second-year allocations to localities, with the assumption that Medicaid coverage of therapeutic foster care and residential services would not begin until January 1, 2000. In the event that coverage begins earlier, the Office has already been granted authority in the introduced budget to transfer general fund allocations between the Medicaid and non-Medicaid pools.)
