(This amendment recognizes $10.1 million in general fund savings and $38,332 in nongeneral fund savings the second year from a six-month delay in redesign and enhancement of Medicaid behavioral health services to provide a continuum of care that is evidence-based, trauma-informed and cost effective. Funding for this effort was restored in the 2020 Special Session I, but the six-month delay in the implementation of these services will generate a one-time savings in fiscal year 2022.)
