Page 229, line 47, strike "$40,716,406" and insert "$38,303,254".
Page 230, after line 23, insert:
"4.  Effective July 1, 2011, the Department of Social Services shall reduce the base approved licensed assisted living facility rates for individual facilities on an occupancy rate of 85 percent of licensed capacity by four percent.  
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 this paragraph shall not become effective.”

(This amendment reduces the rates paid to assisted living facilities under the auxiliary grant program by four percent the second year. A companion amendment to Item 297 reduces funding in Medicaid based on this provider rate reduction which has the effect of reducing eligibility in Medicaid. Language is added to restore funding if Congress passes a six-month extension of increased Federal Medical Assistance Percentage (FMAP) through June 30, 2011.)
