Page 261, line 37, after "July 1, 2010" insert "through June 30, 2011,".
Page 261, line 42, after "the first year", strike "and".
Page 261, line 43, strike "$2,700,000 total funds the second year".
Page 266, line 27, after "Medicaid Services", insert "minus $400,000".

(This amendment limits the funding increase for freestanding children's hospitals to $2.0 million. The introduced budget included physician supplemental payments in the amount of $1.2 million and an increase in special Indirect Medical Education (IME) payments for freestanding children's hospitals by $800,000. Based on updated information, the physician supplemental payments are expected to generate $4.3 million as opposed to the $1.2 million in the introduced budget. Therefore, to limit the funding increase to $2.0 million, this amendment eliminates the special IME payment of $2.7 million and reduces the physician supplemental payments by $400,000.)
