"X. Out of this appropriation, $32,967,146 the first year and $2,603,514 the second year from the general fund is provided to fully staff and support existing crisis receiving centers and crisis stabilization units."


(This amendment provides $33.0 million the first year and $2.6 million the second year from the general fund to ensure existing crisis centers are fully staffed. This amendment redirects proposed funding to establish new crisis centers in order to ensure all crisis centers are fully staffed before establishing new ones. Existing crisis stabilization units have bed capacity that is not fully utilized because of lack of staff and additional funding could help existing centers hire the staff they need to operate all or more of their licensed beds.)
