(This amendment reduces $2.1 million from the general fund each year that was proposed in the introduced budget to provide community inpatient mental health services for children who do not have other insurance to pay for needed treatment. A separate amendment to Item 309 restores general funds to continue operating 48 treatment beds at the Commonwealth Center for Children and Adolescents in Staunton, making this additional $2.1 million from the general fund unnecessary. A companion amendment in Item 311 updates an informational table reflecting position levels and appropriations and another amendment in Item 132 restores the educational funding at the Center. Funding is reduced in Item 132 to provide the general fund amounts to reverse closure of the facility which was contained in the introduced budget.)
