(This amendment adds $690,000 from the general fund and $690,000 from nongeneral funds in matching federal Medicaid fund to reassign the 60 slots provided for the Building Independence (BI) Waiver in the introduced budget to the Family and Individual Support (FIS) Waiver. Because the cost of a FIS Waiver slot is higher than a BI Waiver slot, this additional funding is necessary to fund the conversion of the slots to the FIS Waiver.)
