(This amendment adds the third, fourth, fifth, and sixth enactment clauses to the list of enactment clauses that have no expiration date. The third enactment clause modifies the purpose and responsibilities of the Medicaid Innovation and Reform Commission. The fourth enactment clause requires the Secretary of Health and Human Resources to develop and implement a program to purchase health care coverage for low-income uninsured Virginians. The fifth enactment clause authorizes the Secretary of Health and Human Resources to apply for federal funding to perform functions related to a health insurance marketplace. The sixth enactment clause repeals the second enactment clause of Chapter 679 of the Acts of Assembly of 2013 which prohibited any agent, employee or agency of the Commonwealth from taking any action to establish a health benefit exchange.)
