3.  If there is an extension through June 30, 2011 of increased Federal Medical Assistance Percentage under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (P.L. 111-5), the reduction in income eligibility from 300 percent to 250 percent of SSI in this paragraph shall not become effective.”

Language is added to restore funding if Congress passes a six-month extension of increased Federal Medical Assistance Percentage (FMAP) through June 30, 2011.)
