Page 258, line 34, strike "$427,368,769" and insert "$422,549,680".
Page 258, line 35, strike "$341,406,698" and insert "$331,887,609".

(This amendment reduces $4.8 million the first year and $9.5 million the second year from the general fund and 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 remain at the level collected in FY 2014. 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.)
