"Q.1.  The Department of Mental Health, Mental Retardation and Substance Abuse Services shall monitor, on a quarterly basis, federal block grant funds, special project funds, and other items of a categorical nature allocated to community services boards (CSBs).  Funds that have been properly allocated but not encumbered by the end of the second quarter shall be considered for reallocation to community services boards that have a demonstrated need for additional one-time funding for the same purposes, unless a community services board can demonstrate sufficient reason to retain the funds.
2.  Reallocations resulting from unencumbered funds of those items cited above shall be reported to the Chairmen of the House Appropriations and Senate Finance Committees no later than January 31 of each year.
3.  The provisions in paragraphs 1 and 2 are not applicable to non-categorical CSB funds."

(This amendment requires DMHMRSAS to monitor spending by CSBs of certain funds and to reallocate projected unspent funds to other CSBs that demonstrate needs in excess of initial allocations.)
