(This amendment provides $482,100 each year from the general fund to increase the rates paid for the clinical psychological evaluations necessary to determine whether accused persons are competent to stand for trial, their mental status at the time of the alleged offense, and their mental status before sentencing. Currently, the rates for these services range from $200 to $400. The funding provided in this amendment would increase these rates to between $400 and $750.)
