"3.  Of this amount, $22,000,000 from the general fund each year and $22,000,000 from the federal trust fund each year shall be used to add 880 new waiver slots under the Mental Retardation Waiver Program beginning July 1, 2004.  Any unexpended appropriations for this purpose shall not cancel but be available in the following fiscal year."

(This amendment provides an increase of $22.0 million from the general fund and $22.0 million from federal funds each year to provide 880 new community-based mental retardation waiver slots. This funding will substantially reduce the urgent care waiting list, and it replaces any funding provided in Senate Bill 30 as introduced for the same purposes. This initiative is part of the "Virginia Investment Act.")
