Fiscal Detail and Notes
The bill includes a General Fund appropriation to the Department of Health and Human Services of $47,235 in fiscal year 2016-17 to establish one additional nurse education consultant position. Federal Expenditures Fund allocations will also be required for the FMAP match.

Based on a more current estimate, DHHS has indicated different appropriations and allocations would be required to implement the provisions of the bill. It would recommend decreasing the General Fund appropriation already in the bill by $3,175 in fiscal year 2016-17 and decreasing the allocation to the Federal Expenditures Fund by $3,175 in fiscal year 2016-17.
