(This amendment provides $1.0 million each year from the general fund and $3.0 million each year from nongeneral funds for local departments of social services administrative operations for Medicaid application and renewal processing. Local departments have experienced an increased volume of applications for Medicaid as a result of open enrollment on the federally facility exchange and a subsequent increase in Medicaid applications. Consequently, local departments are struggling to complete Medicaid renewal applications.)
