(This amendment reduces $7.8 million from the general fund and $7.8 million nongeneral fund in the second year that represents the funding for Intellectual Disability and Developmental Disability waiver slots that were removed in the 2014 Session. These slots were removed because they exceeded the mandatory number required by the Department of Justice (DOJ) Settlement Agreement. While the funding in FY 2015 was removed, the FY 2016 funding was not. This amendment removes that funding but reallocates it in a separate amendment in Item 301 to begin implementing the new rates as proposed in the waiver rate study conducted by the Department of Behavioral Health and Developmental Services.)
