(This amendment reduces funding of $6.1 million from the general fund and $6.1 million from nongeneral funds to reflect a lower estimate of expenditures related to behavioral health homes included in the introduced budget. This initiative is part of the "A Healthy Virginia" plan announced last fall. Based on more recent information, the Department of Medical Assistance Services doesn't expect to spend as much funding for behavioral homes in FY 2016. The budget still includes $5.0 million in total funds for this initiative.)
