(This amendment defers implementation of new Developmental Disability Waiver slots in fiscal year 2022 which results in general fund savings of $6.2 million and nongeneral fund savings of $6.2 million. These new slots are above those required to be funded by the U.S. Department of Justice Settlement Agreement. Language revises the number of waiver slot in fiscal year 2022 to reflect (i) action in the introduced budget to eliminate 250 waiver slots which were unallotted in April, (ii) deferral of 75 Community Living Waiver slots and (ii) deferral of 200 Family and Individual Support waiver slots. Funding and slots remain in fiscal year 2022 for facility discharges and emergency slots.)
