(This amendment captures savings from the introduced budget to fund legislation passed during the 2014 Regular Session (SB 260) related to temporary detention orders (TDO) for adults with mental illness. The introduced budget provided $1.4 million the first year and $1.7 million the second year from the general fund to extend the TDO maximum period from 48 to 72 hours and to require a minimum TDO period of 24 hours. The 24-hour minimum for which an individual must be detained under a TDO was not adopted in the legislation, resulting in savings to the general fund of $279,027 the first year and $393,920 the second year.)
