(This amendment eliminates language in the introduced budget making the additional funding for three new programs of assertive community treatment (PACT) to treat seriously mentally ill individuals contingent upon 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 who are in need of intensive treatment services in order to avoid placement in state mental health facilities. This is one of several amendments addressing contingency funding for Olmstead initiatives.)
