Health And Human Resources
Health, Department of FY2013 $500,000 FY2014 $0 GF

Page 216, line 9, strike "$52,871,109" and insert "$53,371,109".

(This amendment provides $500,000 GF the first year to eliminate any waiting list for the Aids Drug Assistance Program (ADAP) that has developed since last year when funding for the program was reduced by $1.0 million GF each year. The restoration of general fund support along with an expected increase in federal funding should provide sufficient funding through FY 2013 to ensure individuals receiving ADAP support are provided with access to needed medications. If policy changes made to ADAP last year are not successful, this bridge funding will need to be extended by an additional year.)
