(This amendment includes $1.7 million the second year from the general fund and an equal amount of federal Medicaid matching funds to pay for additional caseload growth expected from a $52 increase in the monthly auxiliary grant payment contained in Item 337. Increasing the monthly auxiliary payment has the effect of expanding Medicaid eligibility, because auxiliary grant recipients are automatically eligible for Medicaid.)
