Statement of Purpose
RS16126C1

This is a Fiscal Year 2006 Supplemental Appropriation to the Department of Health and Welfare for psychiatric hospitalization in the Community Hospitalization Program and the State Hospital South Program. This provides $1,718,700 from the General Fund to pay the community hospitalization costs for persons that are committed to the state, but for whom there is no available bed at either state hospital. This bill also provides an additional $980,000 spending authority in the dedicated funds for personnel costs for the State Hospital South. These funds are Medicaid receipts used to offset the necessity for additional General Funds.
