(This amendment supplants general fund for Medicaid from a federal bonus payment of $26,729,489 that was awarded on December 28, 2011. This bonus was authorized by the Children's Health Insurance Program Reauthorization Act (CHIPRA) of 2009. The bonus is based on the change in children's enrollment in Medicaid. Last year the budget included savings in fiscal year 2012 of an estimated bonus of $9,898,348. However, the full amount of the bonus is available to be captured because the Medicaid forecast this year did not include the estimated savings.)
