Revise Audit Requirement for Health Planning Agencies (language only)

Item 311 #1c

Item 311 #1c

Health And Human Resources
Health, Department of

Page 288, strike lines 4 through 7, and insert:
"3.  The Department of Health shall revise annual agreements with the regional health planning agencies to require an annual independent financial audit to examine the use of state funds and the reasonableness of those expenditures."

(This amendment eliminates language requiring the Auditor of Public Accounts to annually audit the regional health planning agencies and substitutes language requiring the agencies to have an annual independent financial audit. Regional health planning agencies are not agencies of the Commonwealth and consequently already hire independent auditors to conduct annual financial audits.)
