        extend project approval for an additional 18 months for any 
        proposed exception to the nursing home licensure and 
        certification moratorium if the proposal was approved under this 
        section between July 1, 2001, and June 30, 2003.

        cost to medical assistance shall carry forward and shall be 
        available for the issuance of a new moratorium round later in 
        that fiscal year or in either of the following two fiscal years.
