Synopsis As Introduced Establishes the percentages allocated to each House Appropriation Committee of available general funds revenues.
House Committee Amendment No. 2 Replaces everything after the heading with substantially similar provisions, but makes changes. Establishes the amounts and percentages of available general funds revenues allocated to each House appropriation committee. Establishes the amounts of the non-discretionary general funds spending items that shall be deducted from the allocations to the appropriation committees. Resolves that the amounts available to each appropriation committee are contingent upon actions being taken to reduce the accrual of Medicaid obligations incurred during State fiscal year 2013 in the amount of $2,700,000,000. Provides that, if the reduction is not achieved in full, then the amounts available to each appropriation committee must be reduced accordingly. Resolves that if the actual amount of general funds that become available during State fiscal year 2013 exceeds the House's estimates, then that excess shall first be used to reduce the backlog of unpaid State obligations.
