(This amendment reduces general funds by $5.0 million and increases nongeneral funds by $5.0 million for the Virginia Health Care Fund to reflect constant revenue collections from cigarette taxes. The introduced budget assumed cigarette tax revenues would fall as a result of an increase in the federal cigarette tax that became effective in April 2009. Based on July through December 2009 collections, there is no evidence that collections are falling. Revenues in the Virginia Health Care Fund are used as the state match for Medicaid, so an increase in revenues allows for a reduction in general fund spending.)
