(This amendment increases anticipated revenues to the Virginia Health Care Fund (VHCF) by $9.0 million each year. The introduced budget reduced anticipated revenues to the Fund assuming an increase in the federal tax on cigarettes imposed in April 2009 would have a negative effect on cigarette tax collections. Collections from July through December 2009, however, do not show signs that revenues are declining. Revenues in the Fund are used as the state's general fund match for Medicaid. If revenues to the Fund increase, the general fund commitment to Medicaid is reduced as reflected here.)
