If the intent of the bill is to fund the 15 new sites at the same level as the 15 current sites, then additional annual General Fund appropriations of $157,279 must be added to the Fund for a Healthy Maine funding already in the bill (reflected above) to equal the $757,279 provided to the current SBHC's.
