(This amendment restores $5.8 million from the general fund and $5.8 million in federal matching funds for 200 Medicaid mental retardation waiver slots that were cut in the introduced budget. An additional $6.6 million from the general fund and $6.6 million from federal matching funds is provided to increase the number of waiver slots by 200 in the second year to address the urgent care waiting list. The cost of the waiver slots are increased to account for revised estimates of the increased unit cost of each waiver slot in fiscal year 2010. 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.)
