This bill amends budget language in the Fiscal Year 2016 annual appropriations act to ensure that the $250,000 allocated to the Board of Nursing by a legislative resolution is expended by the board during the fiscal year for the cost of hiring additional staff and other expenses necessary to process and eliminate the home health aide application backlog. This bill makes the appropriation for the operation of all the professional boards within the Division of Consumer affairs in the Department of Law and Public Safety conditioned upon the $250,000 allocation being expended by the Board of Nursing to process and eliminate the home health aide application backlog. The division and the department have not moved forward with implementing the purpose of this budget language. This bill clarifies the language to compel the expenditure of the appropriation to achieve the purpose for which it was intended in the annual appropriations act.
