Under current law, the department of public health and
environment (department) receives pharmaceutical rebates for money

received based on charges in excess of a federal price agreement related
to the state's operation of a drug assistance program to assist individuals
with lower incomes who have medical or preventive needs regarding
AIDS or HIV (state program). The rebates are designated in statute as
donations. The bill removes the statutory designation of the rebates as a
donation and creates a cash fund into which the rebates are credited for
continuous appropriation to the department for the state program. The
cash fund is exempted from the statutory limit on uncommitted reserves
in a cash fund.
