Interfund Transfers

(This amendment transfers an additional $1.0 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 increase 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 and for other reasonable costs.)
