(This amendment captures savings of $21.9 million from the general fund and $21.9 million from matching federal Medicaid funds in the second year contained in the Medicaid forecast for two technical adjustments. The Medicaid forecast assumed that $14.1 million from the general fund and a like amount of nongeneral funds would be spent in fiscal year 2016 to implement a federal Department of Labor (DOL) rule to require the "Employer of Record" to pay overtime for personal care attendants providing home care in the Medicaid waiver programs. The amendment strikes language in the introduced budget implementing this rule, due to a recent federal court decision that struck down these provisions in the DOL rule. The second technical adjustment reduces $7.8 million from the general fund and a like amount of nongeneral funds from Medicaid savings actions taken in Chapter 2, 2014 Special Session I, that should have been adjusted in the second year.)
