Page 362, line 46, after "KK." insert "1.".
Page 363, line 22, strike "The Commissioner shall report on".
Page 363, line 23, strike lines 23 through 27 and insert:
"2.  By August 1, 2009, the Commissioner shall report to the Chairs of the Senate Finance and House Appropriations Committees on the implications of distributing this funding to Community Services Boards based on the per capita populations served by each CSB."

(This language amendment requires the Commissioner to report to the General Assembly on the implications of reallocating funding provided last session for community-based mental health services to reflect the populations served by each CSB as opposed to the existing formula which uses ranges of populations served. This amendment also removes obsolete language requiring a report to the General Assembly.)
