(This amendment reduces $2.9 million the first year and $5.7 million the second year from the general fund and provides a corresponding increase in the Health Care Fund to reflect a revised estimate of tobacco tax revenues that are deposited to the Health Care Fund. This estimate assumes tobacco tax projections will decline by 1.2 percent each year as compared to a three percent decline estimated in the introduced budget. Since the Health Care Fund is used as state match for the Medicaid program, any change in revenue results in a corresponding offset in general fund support.)
