(This amendment reduces funding by $11,475,124 the first year and $3,278,607 the second year from the general fund to reflect a phasing-in of behavioral health positions provided to meet new standards for mental and behavioral health adopted by the Board of Local and Regional Jails. Specifically, this amendment allocates funding to support the authorization of one-quarter of the total proposed positions every six months. This allows sufficient time for local and regional jails to advertise and hire these positions while still providing the full position allocation no later than January 1, 2024.)
