(This amendment adds $1.7 million from the general fund the second year to address a projected shortfall of funding for Inpatient Purchase of Services (LIPOS) in each of the seven mental health partnership regions. Funding will enable individuals with acute mental illness to be diverted from placement in state hospitals and instead be treated in acute private hospitals. The existing funding of approximately $10.0 million from the general fund contained in the budget is not sufficient to meet the needs through the end of the biennium.)
