(This amendment eliminates $28.1 million the first year and $23.1 million the second year from the general fund for a number of economic development and research projects, and tax policy changes set out in Central Accounts. Funding for these items was to be generated from savings to the Medicaid program based on a proposal to expand Medicaid pursuant to the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act contained in the introduced budget. Language is also eliminated earmarking the funding for these projects and authorizing an assessment on hospitals as a mechanism to pay for future Medicaid expansion costs. A companion amendment in Item 306 eliminates Medicaid expansion.)
