(This amendment modifies language included in the proposed budget requiring an independent assessment prior to the delivery of mental health services for children who are at risk of out-of-home placement. The proposed language removes the requirement that there be an independent assessment of the child's risk of out-of-home placement, but requires that a licensed mental health professional submit the assessment electronically and prior to the delivery of mental health services with the exception of case management.)
