"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 add funding for 400 mental retardation waiver slots and 67 developmental disability waiver slots on July 1, 2009."

(This amendment restores funding for 200 mental retardation waiver slots eliminated from the current budget, adds 200 additional MR waiver slots and 67 developmental disability waiver from enhanced federal Medicaid revenues should federal fiscal relief become law.)
