(This amendment provides $300,000 the first year from the general fund for a pilot project to provide for the transportation costs of patients discharged from state hospitals that were admitted under a Temporary Detention Order (TDO). This funding covers the cost of transports of individuals admitted to a state hospital under a 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.)
