Item 320 #1c

Health And Human Resources
Mental Health Treatment Centers

Page 365, strike line 6 through 9.

(This amendment eliminates language that would have transferred $2.1 million the second year from the general fund from the Commonwealth Center for Children and Adolescents (CCCA) in Staunton to the community to provide inpatient mental health services for indigent children, based on a proposal in the introduced budget to close the CCCA by June 30, 2009. A separate amendment to Item 316 requires that the Commissioner of the Department of Mental Health, Mental Retardation and Substance Abuse Services develop a plan to examine the needs of the individuals served at these facilities, the capacity of the community to serve them, and the appropriate role of the state in providing treatment services to this population. Companion amendments in Item 322 and Item 322.05 delete language closing the facility, modify language allocating funding and positions back to the facility, and restore the funding for continued operations.)
