(This amendment provides $5.0 million from the general fund in the second year for mental retardation services for individuals who are not eligible for the Medicaid mental retardation waiver or day support waiver programs. Services would include day support, residential and other services. Each year, young adults graduate from Special Education with vocational and employment needs. This funding would be used to provide services for both adults with mental retardation and Special Education graduates, assisting them to remain in their communities and maximize their educational achievements.)
