(This amendment deletes language contained in the introduced budget directing the Commissioner of the Department of Mental Health, Mental Retardation and Substance Abuse Services to close the Commonwealth Center for Children and Adolescents. The amendment also reduces funding in the department's central office which was transferred from the facility's budget to pay for community acute psychiatric services for indigent children discharged from the CCCA. Companion amendments are provided in items 320 and 322 to restore the funding and allocate it back to the facility for operations.)
