(This amendment adds $10.3 million from the general fund the second year to restore funding for the redesign of Medicaid behavioral health services to ensure that services provided through Medicaid are evidence based and provide a continuum of community rehabilitation behavioral health services. The budget passed in March contained funding for this effort, but funding was subsequently unallotted in April due to the pandemic and eliminated in the introduced budget.)
