              "NEW SECTION. Sec. 1. A new section is added to chapter 44.04 RCW to read as follows:

              The legislative international trade account is created in the custody of the state treasurer. All moneys received by the president of the senate and the secretary of state from gifts, grants, and endowments for international trade hosting, international relations, and international missions activities must be deposited in the account.

A person, as defined in RCW 42.52.010, may not donate, gift, grant, or endow more than five thousand dollars per calendar year to the legislative international trade account. Expenditures from the account may be used only for the purposes of international trade hosting, international relations, and international trade mission activities, excluding travel and lodging, in which the president and members of the senate, members of the house of representatives, and the secretary of state participate in an official capacity. An appropriation is not required for expenditures. All requests by individual legislators for use of funds from this account must be first approved by the secretary of the senate for members of the senate or the chief clerk of the house of representatives for members of the house of representatives. All expenditures from the account shall be authorized by the final signed approval of the chief clerk of the house of representatives, the secretary of the senate, and the president of the senate.

              (2) "Gross income" means all revenue, without deduction, that is derived from the performance of nursing facility services. "Gross income" does not include other operating revenue or nonoperating revenue.

              (4) "Nonoperating revenue" means income from activities not relating directly to the day-to-day operations of an organization. "Nonoperating revenue" includes such items as gains on disposal of a facility's assets, dividends, and interest from security investments, gifts, grants, and endowments.

              (5) "Patient day" means a calendar day of care provided to a nursing facility resident, excluding a medicare patient day. Patient days include the day of admission and exclude the day of discharge; except that, when admission and discharge occur on the same day, one day of care shall be deemed to exist.

              (6) "Medicare patient day" means a patient day for medicare beneficiaries on a medicare Part A stay and a patient day for persons who have opted for managed care coverage using their medicare benefit.

              (7) "Nonexempt nursing facility" means a nursing facility that is not exempt from the quality maintenance fee under section 4 of this act.

              (8) "Nursing facility" has the same meaning as the term is defined in RCW 18.51.010; it does not include a boarding home as defined in RCW 18.20.020 or an adult family home as defined in RCW 70.128.010.

              NEW SECTION. Sec. 4. (1) By June 1st of each year, each nursing facility operator shall file a report with the department of social and health services listing the patient days and the gross income for the prior calendar year for each nursing facility that he or she operates.

              (2) By August 1, 2003, the department of social and health services shall submit for approval to the federal department of health and human services a request for a waiver pursuant to 42 C.F.R. 433.68. The waiver shall identify the nursing facilities that the department proposes to exempt from the quality maintenance fee. Those facilities shall include at least:

              (a) Nursing facilities operated by any agency of the state of Washington;

              (b) Nursing facilities operated by a public hospital district; and

              (c) As many nursing facilities with no or disproportionately low numbers of medicaid-funded residents as, within the judgment of the department, may be exempted from the fee pursuant to 42 C.F.R. 433.68.

              (3) The department of social and health services shall notify the department of revenue and the nursing facility operator of the nursing facilities that would be exempted from the quality maintenance fee pursuant to the waiver request submitted to the federal department of health and human services. The nursing facilities included in the waiver request may withhold payment of the fee pending final action by the federal government on the request for waiver.

              (4) If the request for waiver is approved, the department of social and health services shall notify the department of revenue and the nursing facility operator that no quality maintenance fee is due from the facility. If the request for waiver is denied, nursing facility operators who have withheld payment of the fee shall pay all such fees as have been withheld.

              (5) The department of social and health services shall take whatever action is necessary to continue the waiver from the federal government.

              (6) The department of social and health services may adopt such rules, in accordance with chapter 34.05 RCW, as necessary to provide for effective administration of this section and section 5 of this act.

              (2) The expiration of sections 1 through 5 of this act shall not be construed as affecting any existing right acquired or liability or obligation incurred under those sections or under any rule or order adopted under those sections, nor as affecting any proceeding instituted under those sections.


              NEW SECTION. Sec. 7. If any provision of this act or its application to any person or circumstance is held invalid, the remainder of the act or the application of the provision to other persons or circumstances is not affected.


              NEW SECTION. Sec. 8. (1) Sections 1 through 3 of this act constitute a new chapter in Title 82 RCW.

              (2) Sections 4 and 5 of this act are each added to chapter 74.46 RCW.


              NEW SECTION. Sec. 9. This act is necessary for the immediate preservation of the public peace, health, or safety, or support of the state government and its existing public institutions, and takes effect June 1, 2003."

              (2) The department of social and health services shall not initiate any services that require expenditure of state general fund moneys unless expressly authorized in this act or other law.

If the department receives unanticipated unrestricted federal moneys, those moneys shall be spent for services authorized in this act or in any other legislation providing appropriation authority, and an equal amount of appropriated state general fund moneys shall lapse. Upon the lapsing of any moneys under this subsection, the office of financial management shall notify the legislative fiscal committees. As used in this subsection, "unrestricted federal moneys" includes block grants and other funds that federal law does not require to be spent on specifically defined projects or matched on a formula basis by state funds.

              The appropriations in this subsection are subject to the following conditions and limitations:

              (a) Regional support networks shall use portions of the general fund--state appropriation for implementation of working agreements with the vocational rehabilitation program which will maximize the use of federal funding for vocational programs.

              (b) From the general fund--state appropriations in this subsection, the secretary of social and health services shall assure that regional support networks reimburse the aging and disability services administration for the general fund--state cost of medicaid personal care services that enrolled regional support network consumers use because of their psychiatric disability.

              (c) $4,222,000 of the general fund--state appropriation for fiscal year 2004, $4,222,000 of the general fund--state appropriation for fiscal year 2005, and $8,444,000 of the general fund--federal appropriation are provided solely for the continued operation of community residential and support services for persons whose treatment needs constitute substantial barriers to community placement and who no longer require active psychiatric treatment at an inpatient hospital level of care, no longer meet the criteria for inpatient involuntary commitment, and have been discharged from a state psychiatric hospital. Primary responsibility and accountability for provision of appropriate community support for persons placed with these funds shall reside with the mental health program and the regional support networks, with partnership and active support from the alcohol and substance abuse and from the aging and disability services administration. The department shall continue performance-based incentive contracts to provide appropriate community support services for individuals leaving the state hospitals under this subsection. The department shall first seek to contract with regional support networks before offering a contract to any other party. The funds appropriated in this subsection shall not be considered "available resources" as defined in RCW 71.24.025 and are not subject to the standard allocation formula applied in accordance with RCW 71.24.035(13)(a).

              (d) At least $904,000 of the federal block grant funding appropriated in this subsection shall be used for the continued operation of the mentally ill offender pilot program.

              (e) The department is authorized to implement a new formula for allocating available resources among the regional support networks. The distribution formula shall use the number of persons eligible for the state medical programs funded under chapter 74.09 RCW as the measure of the requirement for the number of acutely mentally ill, chronically mentally ill, severely emotionally disturbed children, and seriously disturbed in accordance with RCW 71.24.035(13)(a). The new formula shall be phased in over a period of no less than six years. Furthermore, the department shall increase the medicaid capitation rates which a regional support network would otherwise receive under the formula by an amount sufficient to assure that total funding allocated to the regional support network in fiscal year 2004 increases by up to 5.0 percent over the amount actually paid to that regional support network in fiscal year 2003, and by up to an additional 5.0 percent in fiscal year 2005, if total funding to the regional support network would otherwise increase by less than those percentages under the new formula, and provided that the nonfederal share of the higher medicaid payment rate is provided by the regional support network from local funds.

              (f) Within funds appropriated in this subsection, the department shall contract with the Clark county regional support network for development and operation of a project demonstrating collaborative methods for providing intensive mental health services in the school setting for severely emotionally disturbed children who are medicaid eligible. Project services are to be delivered by teachers and teaching assistants who qualify as, or who are under the supervision of, mental health professionals meeting the requirements of chapter 275-57 WAC. The department shall increase medicaid payments to the regional support network by the amount necessary to cover the necessary and allowable costs of the demonstration, not to exceed the upper payment limit specified for the regional support network in the department's medicaid waiver agreement with the federal government after meeting all other medicaid spending requirements assumed in this subsection. The regional support network shall provide the department with (i) periodic reports on project service levels, methods, and outcomes; and (ii) an intergovernmental transfer equal to the state share of the increased medicaid payment provided for operation of this project.

              (g) The department shall assure that each regional support network increases spending on direct client services in fiscal years 2004 and 2005 by at least the same percentage as the total state, federal, and local funds allocated to the regional support network in those years exceeds the amounts allocated to it in fiscal year 2003.

              (h) The department shall reduce state funding otherwise payable to a regional support network in fiscal years 2004 and 2005 by the full amount by which the regional support network's total administrative expenditures as of December 31, 2002, exceed ten percent of total funding.

              (i) The department is authorized to develop an integrated health care program designed to slow the progression of illness and disability and better manage medicaid expenditures for the aged and disabled population. In accordance with the Washington medicaid integration partnership (WMIP), the department may combine and transfer such medicaid funds (including medical, long-term care, mental health, and substance abuse treatment) as may be necessary to finance a unified health care plan for the WMIP program enrollment. The state may withhold from calculations of "available resources" as defined in RCW 71.24.025 a sum equal to the capitated rate for individuals enrolled in this pilot program.

The health care authority shall base its enrollment policies during the 2003-2005 biennium on its September 6, 2001, administrative policy on basic health enrollment management.

              (3) Within funds appropriated in this section and sections 205 and 206 of this act, the health care authority shall continue to provide an enhanced basic health plan subsidy for foster parents licensed under chapter 74.15 RCW and workers in state-funded home care programs. Under this enhanced subsidy option, foster parents and home care workers with family incomes below 200 percent of the federal poverty level shall be allowed to enroll in the basic health plan at a cost of ten dollars per covered worker per month.

              (4) The health care authority shall require organizations and individuals which are paid to deliver basic health plan services and which choose to sponsor enrollment in the subsidized basic health plan to pay for the following: (i) A minimum of fifteen dollars per enrollee per month for persons below 100 percent of the federal poverty level; and (ii) a minimum of twenty dollars per enrollee per person per month for persons whose family income is 100 percent to 125 percent of the federal poverty level.

              (5)(a) In coordination with the department of social and health services medical assistance administration and other interested entities, the administrator will identify and design pilot projects to improve health care coverage access, including review of proposals by entities that have received funding through the federal health resources and services administration community access program. The administrator may identify pilot projects that are found feasible and that will not require financial resources beyond those appropriated for the basic health plan or the medical assistance administration in the biennial operating budget. Pilot projects may include applying basic health plan or medical assistance subsidy payments toward employer- sponsored health insurance or other health insurance premium shares, rather than as direct payments to managed health care systems participating in the basic health plan or medical assistance program.

              (b) The schedule of benefits for persons enrolled through a potential pilot project may differ from the benefits offered through the basic health plan, but shall be reasonably comparable in value to those benefits.

              (c) By November 1, 2003, the administrator and the secretary of the department of social and health services shall jointly report to the health care committees of the senate and the house of representatives on their progress in developing the pilot projects, the requested implementation date of any pilot project under development, and any statutory changes needed to implement the pilot projects.

              (6) Upon enactment of Engrossed Substitute House Bill No. 1299 (state purchased health care) during the 2003 legislative session, the administrator, in coordination with the department of social and health services and the department of labor and industries shall undertake an evidence-based review and assessment of the effectiveness of spinal cord stimulators and drug infusion pumps. In performing the assessment, the administrator and the departments shall consider the best available external clinical evidence derived from systematic research, and relevant coverage criteria and standards adopted by other federal and state health care programs.

              (7) Within the amounts appropriated in this act, sufficient funding is provided for implementation of Second Substitute House Bill No. 1214 (prescription drugs).

              (8)(a) To maximize opportunities to decrease administrative burdens for providers and plans participating in state purchased health care programs, the administrator, the assistant secretary for the medical assistance administration of the department of social and health services, and the director of the department of labor and industries, in collaboration with health carriers, health care providers, and the office of the insurance commissioner shall, within available resources, collectively:

              (i) Assess each of the strategies in (b) of this subsection;

              (ii) Take steps to implement by December 31, 2004, those strategies in (b) of this subsection that are feasible to implement, taking into consideration fiscal constraints, and federal or state statutory or regulatory barriers;

              (iii) To the extent that a strategy in (b) of this subsection cannot be implemented by December 2004, identify the specific fiscal constraints, or the specific federal or state statutory or regulatory barriers, that prevent its implementation; and

              (iv) On or before December 1, 2003, provide a progress report to the relevant policy and fiscal committees of the legislature on the activities provided in (a)(i) through (iii) of this subsection.

              (b) The strategies to be assessed under this subsection include the following:

              (i) Improve core services, including: Improving timeliness of claims processing and responses to provider inquiries; improving distribution of medical assistance program fee schedules; and clearly defining and communicating scope of coverage under managed care contracts;

              (ii) Streamline current administrative practices, including: Maximizing the capacity for electronic billing and claims submission; and providing electronic access to eligibility, benefits exclusion, and authorization information;

              (iii) Establish clear expectations, including developing clear auditing and data requirements for contracting managed health care plans; and improving consistency between edits in claims processing systems and published fee schedules;

              (iv) Increase consistency with national and regional standards, including: Eliminating "local" billing codes wherever possible; adopting medicare's ambulatory patient classification system for outpatient hospital payments; and increasing the extent to which state agencies accept compliance with standards adopted by national managed care accreditation organizations as meeting agency requirements for managed care contractors; and

              (v) Standardize similarities between agencies, including applying codes consistently across state-purchased health care programs; eliminating burdensome data collection by having state agencies collect data that is available from other state agencies; coordinating audits by state agencies; and standardizing definitions and interpretations of services.

              (9) $39,000 of the general fund--state appropriation for fiscal year 2004 and $37,000 of the general fund--state appropriation for fiscal year 2005 are provided solely for administrative costs associated with providing health insurance coverage to state-funded individual providers through the basic health plan or an equivalent health plan determined by the terms of the collective bargaining agreement between the home care quality authority and the exclusive bargaining representative of individual providers. If an equivalent health plan is purchased under the terms of the collective bargaining agreement, the health care authority shall transfer the funds in this appropriation to the department of social and health services.

              The appropriations in this section are subject to the following conditions and limitations:

              (2) Allocations for certificated staff salaries for the 2003-04 and 2004-05 school years shall be determined using formula-generated staff units calculated pursuant to this subsection. Staff allocations for small school enrollments in (d) through (f) of this subsection shall be reduced for vocational full-time equivalent enrollments. Staff allocations for small school enrollments in grades K-6 shall be the greater of that generated under (a) of this subsection, or under (d) and (e) of this subsection. Certificated staffing allocations shall be as follows:

Funds allocated for these additional certificated units shall not be considered as basic education funding. The allocation may be used for reducing class sizes in grades K-4 or to provide additional classroom contact hours for kindergarten, before-and-after-school programs, weekend school programs, summer school programs, and intercession opportunities to assist elementary school students in meeting the essential academic learning requirements and student assessment performance standards. For purposes of this subsection, additional classroom contact hours provided by teachers beyond the normal school day under a supplemental contract shall be converted to a certificated full-time equivalent by dividing the classroom contact hours by 900.

For purposes of documenting a district's staff ratio under this section, funds used by the district to employ additional classified instructional assistants shall be converted to a certificated staff equivalent and added to the district's actual certificated instructional staff ratio. Additional classified instructional assistants, for the purposes of this subsection, shall be determined using the 1989-90 school year as the base year;

              (C) Any district maintaining a ratio in grades K-4 equal to or greater than 54.0 certificated instructional staff per thousand full- time equivalent students in the 2003-04 school year, and a ratio equal to or greater than 53.2 certificated instructional staff per thousand full-time equivalent students in the 2004-05 school year, may use allocations generated under this subsection (2)(a)(iv) and (v) in excess of that required to maintain the minimum ratio established under RCW 28A.150.260(2)(b) to employ additional basic education certificated instructional staff or classified instructional assistants in grades 5- 6.

School districts shall ensure that special education students as a class receive their full share of the general apportionment allocation accruing through sections 502 and 504 of this act. To the extent a school district cannot provide an appropriate education for special education students under chapter 28A.155 RCW through the general apportionment allocation, it shall provide services through the special education excess cost allocation funded in this section.

              (2)(a) The superintendent of public instruction shall use the excess cost methodology developed and implemented for the 2001-02 school year using the S-275 personnel reporting system and all related accounting requirements to ensure that:

              (i) Special education students are basic education students first;

              (ii) As a class, special education students are entitled to the full basic education allocation; and

              (iii) Special education students are basic education students for the entire school day.

              (b) The S-275 and accounting changes in effect since the 2001-02 school year shall supercede any prior excess cost methodologies and shall be required of all school districts.

              (3) Each fiscal year appropriation includes such funds as are necessary to complete the school year ending in the fiscal year and for prior fiscal year adjustments.

              (4) The superintendent of public instruction shall distribute state funds to school districts based on two categories: The optional birth through age two program for special education eligible developmentally delayed infants and toddlers, and the mandatory special education program for special education eligible students ages three to twenty- one. A "special education eligible student" means a student receiving specially designed instruction in accordance with a properly formulated individualized education program.

              (5)(a) For the 2003-04 and 2004-05 school years, the superintendent shall make allocations to each district based on the sum of:

              (i) A district's annual average headcount enrollment of developmentally delayed infants and toddlers ages birth through two, multiplied by the district's average basic education allocation per full-time equivalent student, multiplied by 1.15; and

              (ii) A district's annual average full-time equivalent basic education enrollment multiplied by the funded enrollment percent determined pursuant to subsection (6)(b) of this section, multiplied by the district's average basic education allocation per full-time equivalent student multiplied by 0.9309.

              (b) For purposes of this subsection, "average basic education allocation per full-time equivalent student" for a district shall be based on the staffing ratios required by RCW 28A.150.260 and shall not include enhancements, secondary vocational education, or small schools.

              (a) "Annual average full-time equivalent basic education enrollment" means the resident enrollment including students enrolled through choice (RCW 28A.225.225) and students from nonhigh districts (RCW 28A.225.210) and excluding students residing in another district enrolled as part of an interdistrict cooperative program (RCW 28A.225.250).

              (b) "Enrollment percent" means the district's resident special education annual average enrollment, excluding the birth through age two enrollment, as a percent of the district's annual average full-time equivalent basic education enrollment.

              Each district's general fund--state funded special education enrollment shall be the lesser of the district's actual enrollment percent or 12.7 percent. Increases in enrollment percent from 12.7 percent to 13.0 percent shall be funded from the general fund--federal appropriation.

              (7) At the request of any interdistrict cooperative of at least 15 districts in which all excess cost services for special education students of the districts are provided by the cooperative, the maximum enrollment percent shall be calculated in accordance with subsection (6)(b) of this section, and shall be calculated in the aggregate rather than individual district units. For purposes of this subsection, the average basic education allocation per full-time equivalent student shall be calculated in the aggregate rather than individual district units.

              (8) To the extent necessary, $25,746,000 of the general fund-- federal appropriation is provided for safety net awards for districts with demonstrated needs for state special education funding beyond the amounts provided in subsection (5) of this section.

Safety net funds shall be awarded by the state safety net oversight committee subject to the following conditions and limitations:

              (a) The committee shall consider unmet needs for districts that can convincingly demonstrate that all legitimate expenditures for special education exceed all available revenues from state funding formulas. In the determination of need, the committee shall also consider additional available revenues from federal and local sources. Differences in program costs attributable to district philosophy, service delivery choice, or accounting practices are not a legitimate basis for safety net awards.

              (b) The committee shall then consider the extraordinary high cost needs of one or more individual special education students. Differences in costs attributable to district philosophy, service delivery choice, or accounting practices are not a legitimate basis for safety net awards.

              (c) The maximum allowable indirect cost for calculating safety net eligibility may not exceed the federal restricted indirect cost rate for the district plus one percent.

              (d) Safety net awards shall be adjusted based on the percent of potential medicaid eligible students billed as calculated by the superintendent in accordance with chapter 318, Laws of 1999.

              (e) Safety net awards must be adjusted for any audit findings or exceptions related to special education funding.

              (9) The superintendent of public instruction may adopt such rules and procedures as are necessary to administer the special education funding and safety net award process.

              (a) One staff from the office of superintendent of public instruction;

              (b) Staff of the office of the state auditor; and

              (c) One or more representatives from school districts or educational service districts knowledgeable of special education programs and funding.

              (12) $1,000,000 of the general fund--federal appropriation is provided for projects to provide special education students with appropriate job and independent living skills, including work experience where possible, to facilitate their successful transition out of the public school system. The funds provided by this subsection shall be from federal discretionary grants.

              (13) The superintendent shall maintain the percentage of federal flow-through to school districts at 85 percent. In addition to other purposes, school districts may use increased federal funds for high- cost students, for purchasing regional special education services from educational service districts, and for staff development activities particularly relating to inclusion issues.

              (14) A maximum of $1,200,000 of the general fund--federal appropriation may be expended by the superintendent for projects related to use of inclusion strategies by school districts for provision of special education services.
