(This amendment restores $17.9 million GF the second year to maintain state funding for Southeastern Virginia Training Center in Chesapeake (SEVTC), the Commonwealth Center for Children and Adolescents in Staunton, and the adolescent unit at Southwestern Virginia Mental Health Institute located in Marion. The introduced budget proposed the closure of these facilities or units no later than June 30, 2009. A separate amendment restores funding for the renovation and construction projects at SEVTC and Central Virginia Training Centers in Lynchburg that was diverted in the introduced budget for community-based housing. 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.)
