(This amendment provides $1.1 million the first year and $781,494 the second year from the general fund for the transportation costs of patients discharged from state hospitals that were admitted under a Temporary Detention Order (TDO). This funding request covers the cost of 100 percent of transports of all 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.)
