Page 343, after line 50, insert:
"VVV.  Contingent upon the enactment of federal fiscal relief, any unbudgeted amount of general fund savings which may result from an increase in the federal matching assistance percentage payments (FMAP) shall be used to restore budget reduction strategies in Item 306 (Medicaid Program Services).  Priority should be given to those items which 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. Priority is given to provider rate changes.)
