Page 340, line 42, strike "The Department of Medical Assistance Services" and insert:
"Out of this appropriation, $1,700,000 from the general fund and $1,700,000 from nongeneral funds the second year shall be used to".
Page 340, line 43, strike "shall".
Page 340, line 43, strike "consumer-directed".
Page 340, line 45, strike "by three percent".
Page 340, line 46, strike "effective July 1, 2009".

(This language amendment modifies a proposal included in the Governor's budget which would have increased Medicaid payments for consumer-directed personal care services by 3 percent. Funding is retained, but directed to provide an increase for all providers of personal care services. Because more providers would be eligible for the increase, language specifying percentage increase is eliminated.)
