(This amendment adds $2.4 million from the general fund the second year to restore funding for Medicaid rate increases for mental health service providers to 110 percent of Medicare rates. The budget passed in March contained $2.4 million each year for this rate increase, but funding was subsequently unallotted in April due to the pandemic and eliminated in the introduced budget.)
