"K.  In addition to the amounts provided in Chapter 924, Acts of Assembly (1997), a supplement of $1,500,000 is provided from the general fund for Item 327, Administrative and Support Services, in the second year for Western State Hospital."

(This amendment provides funds to cover a shortfall in the budget for Western State Hospital (WSH). Patients were not transferred to Northern Virginia facilities as soon as expected, resulting in additional operating costs for WSH.)
