         SECTION 35.  HEALTH AND HUMAN SERVICES COMMISSION: CERTAIN
  RIDERS. Rider 26 to the bill pattern of the appropriations to the
  Health and Human Services Commission in Chapter 1355 (H.B. 1), Acts
  of the 82nd Legislature, Regular Session, 2011 (the General
  Appropriations Act), is repealed, and the commission is not
  required to comply with that rider on and after the effective date
  of this Act.
         SECTION 36.  BENEFITS PAID PROPORTIONAL BY FUND. (a) This
  section applies to each item of appropriation made by this Act.
         (b)  In order to maximize balances in the general revenue
  fund, payment for benefits paid from funds appropriated by this
  Act, including "local funds" and "educational and general funds,"
  as those terms are defined by Sections 51.009(a) and (c), Education
  Code, must be proportional to the source of the funds except for
  payments for higher education employees group insurance
  contributions for public community or junior colleges.
         (c)  Money appropriated by this Act out of the general
  revenue fund may not be used to pay employee benefit costs or other
  indirect costs associated with the payment of salaries or wages of
  employees if the salaries or wages are paid from a source other than
  the general revenue fund. A public community or junior college may
  spend money appropriated by this Act for employee benefit costs for
  any employee who is eligible to participate in an offered group
  benefits program and is an instructional or administrative employee
  whose entire salary may be paid from money appropriated by this Act,
  regardless of whether the salary is actually paid by that money.
  Payments for employee benefit costs associated with salaries and
  wages paid from sources other than the general revenue fund,
  including payments received under interagency agreement or as
  contract receipts, must be made in proportion to the source of the
  funds from which the salary or wage is paid. If the comptroller of
  public accounts determines that achieving proportionality as
  required by this section at the time a payment is made is
  impractical or inefficient, then the general revenue fund shall be
  reimbursed for any payment of employee benefit costs made out of the
  general revenue fund.
         (d)  A state agency or institution of higher education that
  receives an appropriation by this Act from the general revenue fund
  or any other source of financing shall file with the comptroller of
  public accounts and the state auditor a report demonstrating
  proportionality. The report is due on November 20th of each year
  and must cover the state fiscal year ending on August 31st of the
  year in which the report is due. The report shall be in the format
  prescribed by the comptroller, the Legislative Budget Board, and
  the State Auditor's Office. The state auditor may audit a state
  agency's or institution's compliance with this section if the
  agency or institution is appropriated money by this Act. The state
  auditor shall notify the comptroller of any amount
  disproportionally paid from general revenue fund appropriations.
  On receipt of that notice, the comptroller shall reduce the state
  agency's or institution's current year general revenue fund
  appropriations until the general revenue fund is reimbursed for the
  amounts disproportionally paid out of that fund.
         SECTION 37.  EFFECTIVE DATE. (a)  Subject to Subsection (b)
  of this section, this Act takes effect immediately as provided for a
  general appropriations act under Section 39, Article III, Texas
  Constitution.
         (b)  Sections 20, 21, 22, and 25 of this Act take effect only
  if this Act receives a vote of two-thirds of the members present in
  each house of the legislature, as provided by Section 49-g(m),
  Article III, Texas Constitution.
