Item 3-1.01 #1c

Interfund Transfers

Page 491, after line 11, insert:
"Y. The State Comptroller shall transfer on or before June 30, 2009, $1,000,000, and on or before June 30, 2010, $1,000,000, to the general fund from the Trauma Center Fund contained in the Department of Health’s Financial Assistance for Non Profit Emergency Medical Services Organizations and Localities Program (40203)."

(This amendment requires the transfer of $1.0 million from the Trauma Center Fund to the general fund in each year of the biennium. Revenues to hospitals from the Trauma Center Fund have exceeded initial expectations by more than $4.0 million annually. After this transfer, trauma centers will continue to receive approximately $7.2 million each year from the fund.)
