(This amendment modifies budget language to align general fund savings with a proposal 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 included a proposal to reduce 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 and modifies budget language.)
