(This amendment reduces $5.6 million general fund the first year and $5.4 million the second year to reflect an increase in Medicaid recoveries for the Health Care Fund, which is used as state match for the Medicaid program. Higher revenues to the fund reduce the general fund need for Medicaid and likewise any increase in revenue results in additional general fund needed to fully fund the state match for Medicaid. Based on the fiscal year 2018 pharmacy rebate collections to date, this amendment increases projected revenue for rebates by five percent each year. In addition, it also assumes a slightly higher collection of revenues from the tther tobacco products tax, collections of which are also higher than expected.)
