Page 121, after line, 26, insert:

"EE.1.  The Department of Behavioral Health and Developmental Services shall request and accept for consideration proposals, in accordance with Chapter 22.1 of the Code of Virginia, from private entities for the operation of the newer facilities, and other buildings as necessary, at the Central Virginia Training Center in order to to continue to serve those residents that choose to stay and receive care at the facility.    The proposals shall include the leasing of state property and buildings.  All proposals received shall be submitted to the Public-Private Partnership Advisory Commission.

2. Any capital payments for the construction of group homes or intermediate care facilities for the intellectually disabled shall be suspended until July 1, 2017, when the proposals have been submitted to the Governor and the Chairmen of the Senate Finance and House Appropriations Committees."


(This amendment requires the Department of Behavioral Health and Developmental Services to request proposals related to the operation of the newer buildings at Central Virginia Training Center (CVTC) for the continued care of those residents that choose to remain. CVTC is currently slated to close in 2020, however, significant investments in the facility in recent years, along with a strong interest to stay at CVTC by the majority of residents, necessitates that the Commonwealth explore all additional options for the facility.)
