(This amendment captures $104.0 million in general fund savings and reflects additional nongeneral funds as a result of the change in the federal match rate for Medicaid due to the extension of the federal public health emergency (PHE). The Families First Coronavirus Response Act (P.L. 116-127) provides a 6.2 percentage point increase in the state's federal match rate for Medicaid in each quarter under a PHE. The federal Secretary of Health and Human Services announced in January another 90-day extension and this amendment reflects the savings to the Commonwealth for the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2022. Upon enrolling of House Bill 29, the appropriation changes will be reflected in the appropriate items.)
