(This amendment restores the requirement that the Department of Behavioral Health and Developmental Services post all renewals and denials for an initial or renewal license in order to ensure transparency in the licensing process. In addition, the language directs that the new nonrefundable fee for an initial and renewal license application for adult behavioral health and developmental services licenses be used to increase the capacity to process licenses to address backlogs in processing applications.)
