Item 302 #2c

Department of Health FY2021 $0 FY2022 ($7,364,304) GF

Page 333, line 20, strike "$292,637,694" and insert "$285,273,390".

Page 336, strike lines 9 through 16, and insert:

“H. Out of this appropriation, $2,835,696 the second year from the general fund shall be provided to address revisions to the JLARC rate formula for the Cooperative Health Budget. These revisions and the changes in the local match rates shall be phased in over a three-year period beginning in the second year and shall be fully phased in by fiscal year 2024."


(This amendment reduces $7.4 million the second year from the general fund by phasing in over three years the increase in local matching funds and the increase in state support for the updates to the local health department cooperative funding formula. The introduced budget provided $10.2 million, which included funding for a hold harmless in fiscal year 2022, to implement the funding formula changes. This amendment reflects one-third of the state impact in the second year as the changes are phased in over three years and, as such, a hold harmless is not necessary.)
