(This amendment provides $1.0 million from the general fund and $1.0 million from federal Medicaid matching funds each year and revises budget language to increase the cap on Medicaid personal care hours from 48 to 56 hours per week for individuals enrolled in certain Medicaid waiver programs. The introduced budget had reduced the cap to 48 hours per week beginning in fiscal year 2013. The cap is not applied to personal care hours provided through the Intellectual Disability, Individual and Family Developmental Disabilities Support and Technology Assisted Waivers.)
