(This amendment restores general fund support for nursing homes to FY 2011 levels. The amendment removes language reducing nursing home operating rates and capital rates that were slated to take effect on July 1, 2011. It also eliminates an additional reduction in capital reimbursement rates included in the Governor's proposed amendments. Because this amendment holds nursing homes reimbursement rates harmless from further reductions in FY 2012, it also eliminates the additional $5.0 million GF included in the Governor's proposed amendments.)
