(This amendment eliminates language in the introduced budget making the additional funding to purchase private psychiatric inpatient treatment beds in community hospitals contingent upon the Governor's proposed tax plan. The introduced budget added $1.0 million from the general fund each year of the biennium to expand the purchase of these services in order to reduce inpatient admissions and potentially long-term stays at state mental health facilities. This is one of several amendments addressing contingency funding for Olmstead initiatives.)
