Health and Human Resources
Medical Assistance Services, Department of FY2015 $2,300,000 FY2016 $2,300,000 GF

(This amendment supplants $2.3 million each year in nongeneral fund dollars from Tobacco Settlement Funds that were transferred to the Family Access to Medical Insurance Security Plan (FAMIS) with $2.3 million each year from the general fund. A companion amendment in Item 466 restores funds to the Virginia Tobacco Settlement for the Virginia Healthy Youth Foundation, which focuses its efforts on preventing tobacco use by youth and youth obesity prevention. Funding to restore the general fund amount for FAMIS comes from an amendment in Item 101 reducing funds for the Motion Picture Opportunity Fund. A companion technical amendment in Item 301 adjusts the Virginia Health Care Fund to effectuate this change in the nongeneral fund transfer to the Tobacco Settlement Fund.)
