Three pots of money are available to restore the health and human services budget. Pot 1 consists of federal state fiscal relief of over $372 million. Pot 2 consists of unspent general revenue from the regular session of about $99 million. Pot 3 consists of money from the special session, including almost $232 million from corrections to H.B. 3588 regarding the Texas Mobility Fund, and perhaps $99 million available from a court cost issue also in H.B. 3588.
