(This amendment is one of seven budget amendments being introduced on behalf of the Joint Commission on Health Care (JCHC) as part of its plan to eliminate the Certificate of Public Need (COPN) program. The JCHC's COPN deregulation plan is outlined in House Bill 2155 and Senate Bill 1084. As provided in the plan, this budget amendment requests $7,100,000 in the second year to fund one-half of the cost of indigent care at the hospitals and programs affiliated with Eastern Virginia Medical School.)
