AN  ACT  making  an appropriation to the office for people with develop-
  mental disabilities for the purpose of providing  additional  services
  and  expenses  for  community  programs  for people with developmental
  disabilities

  THE PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND  ASSEM-
BLY, DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS:

 EXPLANATION--Matter in ITALICS (underscored) is new; matter in brackets
                      [ ] is old law to be omitted.
                                                           LBD10185-11-3

A. 6692--C                          2

  Section 1. The sum of ninety million dollars ($90,000,000), or so much
thereof  as  may  be necessary, is hereby appropriated to the office for
people with developmental disabilities out of any moneys  in  the  state
treasury in the general fund, not otherwise appropriated, and made imme-
diately available, for the purposes of this act:
  The amount of such monies necessary shall be determined by the commis-
sioner  of  developmental  disabilities  and  director of the budget and
shall consider recommendations  developed  by  the  workgroup  appointed
pursuant  to chapter 53 of the laws of 2013. The workgroup shall develop
its recommendation upon evaluating the extent to which the savings  plan
it  developed  pursuant to budget language included in chapter 53 of the
laws of 2013 maintains rates of payment for Medicaid services at  levels
no  less than those in effect on March 31, 2013 and reimbursement levels
for any other OPWDD funded programs and services in effect on March  31,
2013.  However  to the extent that any additional federal funds or other
funds are made available for this purpose those funds  may  be  used  to
offset  the  requirement  to use the full ninety million dollars. To the
extent that the savings  falls  short  of  the  amount  expected  to  be
achieved  from  recommendations  of  the  workgroup process completed in
April 2013, no later than March 31, 2014  the  director  of  the  budget
shall  deposit  sufficient  funds  to  make up for such shortfall to the
credit of the general fund. The commissioner of developmental  disabili-
ties and director of the budget may also take into account greater effi-
ciencies which do not diminish or impair services or the quality of care
as reflected in the recommendations of the workgroup.
  Ninety  million  dollars  ($90,000,000)  or  such amount as determined
pursuant to this act shall be made available to the  office  for  people
with developmental disabilities immediately for the purpose of providing
additional  services and expenses for community programs for people with
developmental disabilities pursuant to article 41 of the mental  hygiene
law,  and/or chapter 620 of the laws of 1974, chapter 660 of the laws of
1977, chapter 412 of the laws of 1981, chapter 27 of the laws  of  1987,
chapter 729 of the laws of 1989, chapter 329 of the laws of 1993 and any
other provisions of the mental hygiene law.
  Notwithstanding  any  inconsistent provision of law, the appropriation
shall be net of refunds, rebates, reimbursements, and credits.
  Notwithstanding any inconsistent provision of law, the director of the
budget is authorized to make sub-allocations from this appropriation  up
to  $90,000,000  to  the department of health medical assistance program
for the state share of additional medical assistance  services  expenses
incurred  by  the  department  of  health  for  the provision of medical
assistance to people with developmental disabilities.
  Notwithstanding any other provision of law, advances and reimbursement
made pursuant to subdivision (d) of section 41.15 and section  41.18  of
the  mental  hygiene  law shall be allocated pursuant to a plan and in a
manner prescribed by the commissioner of developmental disabilities  and
approved  by  the  director of the budget.  No expenditure shall be made
from this appropriation until  a  certificate  of  allocation  has  been
approved by the director of the budget and copies thereof filed with the
state  comptroller,  and  the  chairs of the senate finance and assembly
ways and means committees. The moneys hereby appropriated are  available
to reimburse or advance localities and voluntary non-profit agencies for
expenditures  made  during  local  fiscal  periods commencing January 1,
2013, April 1, 2013 or July 1, 2013, and for advances for  the  3  month
period beginning January 1, 2014.

A. 6692--C                          3

  Such  moneys  shall  be  payable on the audit and warrant of the comp-
troller on vouchers certified or approved by the commissioner of  devel-
opmental disabilities in the manner prescribed by law.
  S 2. This act shall take effect immediately.
