(This amendment provides $150,000 the second year from the general fund to provide for the transportation costs of patients discharged from state hospitals that were admitted under a Temporary Detention Order (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. These funds were included in the budget passed in March during the 2020 Session, but subsequently unallotted in April due to the COVID-19 pandemic and eliminated in the Chapter 56 budget adopted in the 2020 Special Session.)
