(This amendment adds $750,000 the second year from nongeneral funds for the purchase of naloxone or other opioid antagonists for uninsured hospital patients discharged from emergency departments following an opioid overdose. The source of the nongeneral funds is the additional funding provided in the Substance Abuse Block Grant contained in the recently passed federal Coronavirus Relief and Response Supplemental Appropriations Act. This funding is contingent upon the passage of legislation proposed in the 2021 Session.)
