(This amendment modifies language to align general fund savings with actions included in the introduced budget to reduce reimbursement rates for Residential Level A and B Services (i.e., group homes) by three percent effective July 1, 2011. Chapter 874, 2010 Acts of Assembly, reduces reimbursement rates for group homes by five percent effective July 1, 2011. The introduced budget reduced group home rates by an additional three percent to eight percent. However, budget language erroneously reduced rates by an additional six percent to eleven percent; this amendment corrects the oversight.)
