"VVV.  Out of this appropriation, $750,000 from the general and $750,000 from nongeneral funds the second year shall be used to increase the rates paid to community-based Medicaid mental retardation waiver service providers for supported employment services."

(This amendment provides an additional $750,000 general fund and $750,000 in matching federal Medicaid funds in the second year to increase reimbursement for supported employment services provided by community-based Medicaid mental retardation waiver service providers. This increase will adjust the rates so they are consistent with supported employment rates currently established by the Department of Rehabilitative Services for services provided to disabled individuals who are not eligible for Medicaid-reimbursed services.)
