Amend the joint resolution, as and if amended, SECTION 1, by amending subsection (B) to read:

The remaining portion of Proviso 89.87 remains in effect and continues to have the force of law. The suspension of that portion of Proviso 89.87 of Part IB, Act 291 of 2010 that is suspended pursuant to the provisions of this subsection does not apply to provider rates of rural hospitals. For purposes of this subsection, "rural hospitals" means rural health centers, or RHC's, as defined by federal law which is any nonurbanized area. /
