Page 328, line 10, strike "$228,141,860" and insert "$225,115,869".
Page 330, after line 6, insert:
"N.  Out of this appropriation, $1,525,000 the second year from the general fund is provided for community treatment alternatives for individuals discharged or diverted from Southern Virginia Mental Health Institute."

(This amendment reduces funds for community services for persons served at Southern Virginia Mental Health Institute. The introduced budget proposed closure of the facility at the end of FY 2002 and added $4.5 million to serve discharged or diverted patients. This amendment would allow gradual development of community treatment alternatives, with $1.5 million remaining in the budget for that purpose. A companion amendment in Item 354 prohibits closure of the facility.)
