(This amendment provides $25.6 million the first year and $28.6 million the second year from the general fund and a like amount of federal Medicaid matching funds each year for the fiscal impact of House Bill 309 which creates direct care staffing standards for nursing homes and would result in the need for additional staffing. Funding would be offset by the fiscal impact of House Bill 310 which would reinstate the estate tax and dedicate a portion of the new revenue to fund Medicaid payment increases to meet nursing home direct care staffing standards.)
