Page 248, strike lines 17 through 23.

(This amendment modifies language to authorize funding for podiatry services under the FAMIS program. Chapter 874 of the 2010 Acts of Assembly eliminated funding for this service effective July 1, 2011 and made the restoration contingent upon the availability of additional enhanced federal Medicaid matching funds (FMAP). A separate amendment to Item 297 (Medicaid Program Services) authorizes podiatry services for Medicaid recipients and provides funding to restore services in both Medicaid and FAMIS.)
