Explanation
(This amendment requires the VCU Health Systems Authority to repay $22.0 million in general fund indigent care appropriations at the end of the first year, in the same manner as the introduced budget requires in the second year. A companion amendment in Item 319 adds $11.0 million GF and $11.7 million in federal Medicaid funds. These combined actions would use federal funds to offset state costs for indigent care. No reduction in services or funding would occur: Current appropriations of $22.0 million the first year ($11.0 million GF and $11.0 million in federal funds) would be increased to $22.7 million (all federal funds).)
