(This amendment adds 144 Medicaid Family and Individual Support Waiver slots in the second year. Funding is contained in the introduced budget to provide funding for these slots. Projections of utilization of the newly designed Building Independence, Family and Individual Supports and Community Living Waivers programs have resulted in the ability to serve more individuals than originally anticipated. Language in the introduced budget is eliminated which would have delayed access to additional waiver slots in fiscal year 2018.)
