(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 (CCCA). The amendment also restores $7.6 million the second year to continue operating the adolescent unit at Southwestern Virginia Mental Health Institute in Marion and the CCCA in Staunton. The proposed budget closed this unit and facility, respectively. It is the intent of the General Assembly that the restoration of this funding shall be properly accounted for in calculating the revised amount of savings, position levels, and appropriations during the enrollment of HB 1600/ SB 850, as adopted by the 2009 General Assembly.)
