Page 507, line 22, strike "$744,761,272" and insert "$754,479,811".

Page 510, after line 11, insert:

"10) $9,718,539 in the first year to the Department of Medical Assistance Services (602) to reimburse local government-owned nursing homes for unreimbursed expenses and lost revenue due to the impact of COVID-19."


(This technical amendment provides one-time funding of $9.7 million the first year from federal ARPA funds to address unreimbursed costs for pandemic related expenses. Government-owned nursing homes were deemed ineligible to receive pandemic Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) loans available to many other private providers, which were forgiven if employment levels were maintained.)
