(This amendment provides $7.4 million from the general fund and $11.2 million in matching federal Medicaid funds to add 400 mental retardation waiver slots to address the community waiting list for the 2008-10 biennium. It restores the fiscal year 2010 funding for 200 waiver slots scheduled to be available on April 1, 2009, but were eliminated in the introduced budget. It also provides 200 additional slots beginning January 1, 2010. These slots, along with the 400 new slots added beginning July 1, 2008 will decrease the urgent community waiting list by 20 percent during the 2008-10 biennium. A companion amendment in Item 316 modifies language in the Department of Mental Health, Mental Retardation and Substance Abuse Services to reflect the waiver funding and number of additional slots provided in the second year.)
