thereof as may be necessary, is hereby appropriated to  the  office  for
people  with  developmental  disabilities out of any moneys in the state

  The amount of such monies necessary shall be determined by the commis-
sioner of developmental disabilities and  director  of  the  budget  and
shall  be based on a recommendation 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  funding falls short of the amount necessary to fulfill the
proposes of this act, no later than December 31, 2013  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

greater efficiencies which do not diminish or  impair  services  or  the
quality of care as reflected in the recommendations of the workgroup.

pursuant to this act shall be made available to the  office  for  people
with developmental disabilities immediately for the purpose of providing

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,

AN  ACT  making  an appropriation to the office for people with develop-

  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.
                                                           LBD10185-09-3

A. 6692--B                          2

  Section  1.  This  act  shall be known and may be cited as the "People
with Developmental Disabilities  Restoration  and  Reinvestment  Act  of
2013".
  S  2.  Statement  of  legislative intent. The legislature hereby finds
that providing people with developmental disabilities high quality  care
is  a critical state responsibility as affirmed in public policy includ-
ing federal and state  court  cases  and  legislation.  Furthermore  the
legislature  recognizes  that  critical reductions in state funding were
enacted during the fiscal year  2013-2014  budget  which  will,  if  not
restored,  erode  the  quality  of care for these vulnerable individuals
over time and sabotage state and federal mandates to achieve transforma-
tional objectives and transition to managed care. The  legislature  also
recognizes  that,  in accordance with budget language enacted as part of
chapter 53 of the laws of 2013, substantial and  laudable  progress  has
been  made  by  the  executive  working  in cooperation with people with
developmental disabilities, their families and providers toward  finding
savings  to  minimize  the  impact  of  fiscal  year  2013-2014  funding
reductions. However, it is not sufficiently clear  to  what  extent  the
impact  of these cuts have been minimized. Therefore it is the intent of
the legislature to ensure that the fiscal year  2013-2014  reduction  be
fully  restored  and savings generated which are attributable to program
reductions, administrative  reductions,  more  efficient  operations  or
appropriate  lower  cost  care  stay  within  the office for people with
developmental disabilities' voluntary system  for  reinvestment  towards
unmet  needs.  Finally,  this bill provides a cost effective vehicle for
achieving its goals since it  utilizes  elements  of  the  savings  plan
developed pursuant to chapter 53 of the laws of 2013 to reduce the actu-
al appropriation required.
  S 3. The sum of ninety million dollars ($90,000,000), or so much ther-
eof 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  immediately
available,  for  the  purposes of this act. Such funding shall therefore
supplement the monies appropriated by chapter 53 of the laws of 2013  to
the  office  for  people  with  developmental  disabilities and shall be
subject to the same conditions and requirements as  stipulated  in  such
chapter,  including  sub-allocations to the department of health for the
state's medical assistance program.
  The amount of such monies appropriated  shall  be  determined  by  the
commissioner  of  the  office for people with developmental disabilities
and the director of the budget and shall be based  on  a  recommendation
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 results in any addi-
tional federal funds or other funds being made  available  that  may  be
used  to  offset  the  requirement  to appropriately use the full ninety
million dollars ($90,000,000).  To  the  extent  that  these  additional
sources  of funding fall short of $90,000,000 no later than December 31,
2013 the director of the budget shall cause to be  deposited  sufficient
funds to make up for such shortfall to the credit of the general fund.
  S 4. This act shall take effect immediately.

  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
