(This amendment restores $22.0 million the second year from the general fund to increase provider rates for services provided through the current Medicaid Developmental Disability Waiver programs using updated data measures available, including wage assumptions, to 100 percent of the rate model benchmark. These funds were included in the budget passed in March, but subsequently unallotted in April due to the pandemic and eliminated in the introduced budget.)
