(This amendment adds $1.0 million from the general fund and $1.0 million from federal Medicaid matching funds to add 63 new Family and Individual Support Medicaid waiver slots to address the Priority 1 waiting list. Chapter 2, 2018 Special Session I included funding for a total of 1,695 Medicaid waiver slots for individuals with developmental disability over the 2018-20 biennium. This will bring the total number of waiver slots to 1,758 over the biennium.)
