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:

  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  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
disabilities  and  director  of  the  budget  may also take into account

  disabilities

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

  Section  1.  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
including 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
