(This amendment provides $18.0 million from the general fund each year to offset a reduction in anticipated revenues to the Virginia Health Care Fund (VHCF) of $36.0 million that are used as the state share of Medicaid spending. Lower estimates of tobacco tax revenues require the addition of general fund dollars to fully fund projected Medicaid expenditures. Language is modified to reflect this reduction in the VHCF.)
