(This amendment eliminates the prohibition in the budget on providing inflation to residential psychiatric treatment facilities that are operated by a nonprofit organization. State regulations authorize inflation for these providers but budget language prevents such inflation adjustments from being made. Restoring inflation to nonprofit providers results in an increase in Medicaid expenditures by $1.2 million from the general fund and a like amount of federal matching funds each year.)
