(This amendment provides $200,000 each year from the general fund to provide funding for additional child welfare services that are anticipated as a result of passage of Senate Bill 486. The bill includes in the definition of abuse or neglect children whose parents or caregivers allow the child to be present during the unlawful sale, manufacture, or attempted manufacture of a Schedule I or II controlled substance. Under current law, a child would be considered abused or neglected only if the child is in imminent danger.)
