(This amendment provides $600,000 the first year and $500,000 the second year from the general fund to fund the fiscal impact of Senate Bill 40 which prevents assisted living facilities (ALFs) from involuntarily discharging patients, with certain exceptions. It requires ALFs to take steps to prevent involuntary discharges, provide 30 days' notice, and provide a discharge plan prior to the discharge. The bill also requires the Department of Social Services to establish a process by which the resident or a representative can appeal the involuntary discharge.)
