Page 499, after line 11, insert:
"R.  Effective July 1, 2007, the Department of Planning and Budget shall work with the Department of Mental Health, Mental Retardation, and Substance Abuse Services (DMHMRSAS) and the Department of Medical Assistance Services to incorporate the impact of state salary increases to reflect the appropriate general fund match required to adequately reimburse DMHMRSAS for the increased salary cost incurred at the state-operated training centers and state-operated hospitals that serve geriatric clients.  The calculations shall incorporate general fund costs that are attributable to positions whose salaries are largely funded through Medicaid reimbursements to the facilities.”

(This amendment requires the Department of Planning and Budget to update the methodology that is used to estimate the fiscal impact of employee pay raises to include the impact of increased Medicaid costs that will be incurred at state-owned mental health and mental retardation facilities.)
