(This amendment provides $50,000 from nongeneral fund in the first year as a placeholder amount for a bill that would align the reporting threshold for suspected financial abuse among the elderly to the grand larceny threshold. Current law provides that during an adult protective services investigation that the case is referred to local law enforcement only in cases in which financial losses are suspected to be greater than $50,000. This change should be paid for with the Victim Settlement Fund, not the general fund.)
