(This amendment reduces $1.3 million from the general fund and $1.3 million from federal Medicaid matching funds by reallocating proposed funding for additional intellectual disability (ID) waiver slots. The introduced budget included $9.8 million from the general fund and a similar amount of federal Medicaid matching funds for 275 ID waiver slots. This amendment allocates funding for 175 ID waiver slots and 100 DD waiver slots. Slots have not been added to the DD waiver program since 2007.)
