(This amendment reduces funding of $1.6 million each year from the general fund and a corresponding amount of federal matching funds for administrative contract increases. The introduced budget included $2.4 million each year to cover the expected increase in costs of three administrative contracts: an enrollment broker, actuary and audit contract. The enrollment broker contract was awarded and took effect January 1, 2016. The other two contracts are not yet awarded and will take effect January 1, 2017. This amendment removes the funding for the two contracts yet to be awarded. Since the increased costs of such contracts are not known, it is premature to add funding.)
