(This amendment removes $1.6 million the second year from the general fund for the purchase of opioid overdose reversal drugs and protective equipment provided for distribution to local Emergency Medical Services units. The Virginia Department of Health was receiving funding from the Department of Behavioral Health and Developmental Services. This amendment leaves $1.6 million the first year to bridge the gap until additional federal funding can be secured for this purpose. The federal government continues to provide significant funding to states to deal with the opioid crisis.)
