Page 250, line 34, strike "$9,740,405,698" and insert "$9,736,130,374".

Page 272, strike lines 20 through 24.

Page 272, line 25, strike "Home Supports" and insert:

"(2) initiate the following new waiver services in fiscal year 2017:  Supported Living Residential, Independent Living Residential, Private Duty Nursing Services, Crisis Support Services, Community-based Crisis Supports, Center-based Crisis Supports, and Electronic-based Home Supports; and (3) initiate the following new waiver services in fiscal year 2018:  Community Engagement, Community Coaching, Community Guide and Peer Support Services, Workplace Assistance Services, Benefits Planning and Non-medical Transportation."


(This amendment reduces funding by $2.1 million from the general fund and $2.1 million in nongeneral funds in the first year to defer some of the proposed new services for the intellectual and developmental disability (I/DD) waiver redesign until the second year. This deferral will ensure that the agencies are able to implement three new I/DD waiver programs efficiently and effectively, providing the most critical new services first while continuing to increase the number of waiver slots required pursuant to the U.S. Department of Justice Settlement Agreement. This amendment is not intended to disrupt existing services or rates for supported employment or community-based day support services in the first year.)
