Out of this appropriation, $2,325,094 from the general fund and $2,337,216 from nongeneral funds the second year shall be provided to nursing facilities for fiscal year 2004 for indirect care inflation adjustments.  The inflation adjustment provided to nursing facilities effective on July 1, 2003, shall be calculated in a manner to ensure that the increase in payments does not exceed the funding provided in this amendment."

(This amendment restores 30 percent of the reduction in funding to nursing facilities for an inflation adjustment for indirect care services in fiscal year 2004.
