(This amendment eliminates language in the introduced budget which would have provided for a sunset on June 30, 2016 of any amendments to the Medicaid State Plan to implement Medicaid expansion pursuant to the federal Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA), notwithstanding language contained in Item 301 which allows for such expansion if certain provisions have been met. There are no provisions in the federal PPACA, regulations promulgated by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, or any actions by the Chief Executive of the United States, to provide for a provisional expansion of the Medicaid program allowing a state to unilaterally withdraw from Medicaid expansion.")
