(This amendment eliminates language in the introduced budget that made the additional funding for three new programs of assertive community treatment (PACT) to treat seriously mentally ill individuals contingent upon passage of the Governor's proposed tax plan. The introduced budget added $2.0 million from the general fund in the first year and $2.6 million from the general fund in the second year for three new PACT teams to provide crisis intervention and case management services to seriously mentally ill adults in order to avoid placement in state mental health facilities. This is one of several amendments that removes the contingency language from Olmstead initiatives in order to ensure funding for these services.)
