(This amendment restores language contained in Chapter 780, 2016 Acts of Assembly which conditions expansion of Medicaid pursuant to the federal Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) upon an appropriation by the General Assembly. Language is eliminated which provides authority to expand Medicaid pursuant to the PPACA on or after October 1, 2017. A companion amendment in Part 4 eliminates any language changes which would allow for such an expansion without an appropriation by the General Assembly.)
