"C.  The Secretary of Health and Human Resources shall not discharge any training center resident into community-based care, or transfer a resident to another training center against the wishes of the Authorized Representative of the resident, until:  (i) the Human Services Research Institute has completed its study of prospective waiver costs for such persons and a new waiver is approved and funded and (ii) the Commonwealth has completed a study of the comparative costs of providing the remaining training center residents equal or better supports and services in community placements versus the costs of providing them such supports and services in efficiently restructured training centers."
