(This amendment provides $3.8 million from the general fund each year to fully restore funding for alternative inpatient options to state behavioral health hospital care through the establishment of two-year pilot projects to reduce census pressures on state hospitals. A total of $7.5 million each year was approved in the 2020 Session, but the funding was unalloted due to the revenue impact from the Coronavirus Pandemic. Half the funding was approved in the Special Session in Chapter 56 and this amendment restores the remaining amount.)
