Fiscal Detail and Notes
The bill includes one-time General Fund appropriations to the Department of Health and Human Services of $150,000 in fiscal year 2021-22 and $150,000 in fiscal year 2022-23 to provide  emergency payments to the Maine Veterans' Homes facilities located in Machias and Caribou. Other Special Revenue (OSR) Funds allocations are also included in this bill for the FMAP match.

A more current estimate would not change the General Fund approproations in the bill, but it would include Federal Expenditures Fund allocations for the FMAP match (this does not come from OSR) and it would reduce the Other Special Revenue Funds allocations to the level that should have been included for the Service Provider Tax.
