"VVV.  Contingent upon the enactment of federal fiscal relief, any unbudgeted amounts of general fund savings which may result from the increase in the federal matching assistance percentage (FMAP) of the Medicaid expenditures shall be used to restore budget reductions in Item 306 (Medicaid).  Priority should be given to those items that limit access to services by reducing provider rates and delaying payments."

(This amendment restores any reductions to Medicaid with revenues from enhanced federal Medicaid revenues should federal fiscal relief become law.)
