(This amendment deletes a transfer of $250,000 from the general fund to the Uninsured Medical Catastrophe Fund. No additional appropriation was included in the introduced budget for this transfer, resulting in a shortfall in the Medicaid program of $500,000 when federal matching funds are included. A separate amendment to the caboose bill provides an appropriation of $500,000 from the general fund for the Uninsured Medical Catastrophe Fund; the fund provides financial assistance to uninsured persons who need treatment for a life threatening illness or injury.)
