"AA.  Out of this appropriation, $150,000 the first year and $150,000 the second year shall be provided for transportation costs from state behavioral health facilities to their homes after being discharged from such facility as a result from an admission under a Temporary Detention Order."


(This amendment provides $150,000 each year from the general fund to provide for the transportation costs of patients discharged from state hospitals that were admitted under a Temporary Detention Order (TDO). Oftentimes individuals under a TDO are transported to a state facility that is hours away from the individual's home location and therefore upon discharge may have difficulty getting transportation back to their home location.)
