Page 342, after line 27, insert:

"YYY.  Notwithstanding any other provision of law, any unexpended general fund appropriation remaining in this item on the last day of each fiscal year shall revert to the general fund and shall not be reappropriated in the following fiscal year."


(This amendment reverts any general fund year-end balance in the Medicaid program each year. The appropriation for the Medicaid program is based on an annual forecast, which adjusts the appropriation as needed as part of the normal budget process and therefore any remaining balance in the program should revert at the end of the fiscal year.)
