(This amendment reduces spending in the Medicaid program by $100 million each year from the general fund and $100 million each year from federal matching Medicaid funds based on the implementation of the federal Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act which requires individuals to have health insurance beginning January 1, 2014. It is assumed that the requirements of the federal law will reduce required expenditures in the Medicaid program.)
