(This amendment delays by one year the expansion of the FAMIS Moms program to 200 percent of poverty. The program provides prenatal care for pregnant women in order to improve birth outcomes and reduce uncompensated care at hospitals. In addition, the program generates $2.00 in federal matching funds for each $1.00 spent by the Commonwealth. Language authorizing emergency regulations is also deleted, since the program will not enroll additional low-income pregnant women until July 1, 2009).
