(This amendment reduces $14.1 million from the general fund and $14.1 million from nongeneral funds in the second year as a result of a federal court decision striking down the U.S. Department of Labor's regulation requiring home care attendants be paid overtime. This funding was added in the introduced budget assuming the requirement to pay overtime would take effect. Per the ruling of the court, the overtime regulation is currently not in effect, so this amendment removes the funding.)
