(This amendment reduces general fund support for Medicaid by $26.7 million and replaces it with funding from a federal bonus payment that was awarded on December 28, 2011. This bonus was authorized by the Children's Health Insurance Program Reauthorization Act (CHIPRA) of 2009, and is is based on the change in children's enrollment in Medicaid. Last year's budget, Chapter 890, 2011 Acts of Assembly, assumed general fund savings estimated at $9.9 million. However, the introduced budget removed the estimated general fund savings. This amendment reflects actual general fund savings, based on the amount received from the federal government.)
