Page 322, line 7, after "stakeholders.", insert:
"In the event a recipient of a waiver slot under the Independence Plus Home and Community Based Services Waiver exits the program, funding for the slot shall revert to the waiver program from which the recipient came."

(This amendment ensures that funding for the Independence Plus waiver slot will return to either the Mental Retardation Home- and Community-based Waiver program or the Individual and Family Developmental Disabilities Support Waiver program in the event that an individual exits the waiver program. Currently, no additional funding is provided for the new Independence Plus Home and Community Based Services Waiver; therefore these new waiver services would only be available to individuals currently receiving services under an existing waiver program who choose to transfer to the new waiver program.)
