Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Community Services Act. Provides that whenever a State mental health facility or a State developmental disabilities facility operated by the Department of Human Services is scheduled to have or has a reduction in the number of individuals receiving care in an amount equal to or greater than 10% of the facility's prior highest population during the preceding 12-month period, the Department shall file a report with the General Assembly specifying certain information, including the anticipated new venues for care by venue category, in the aggregate, for the individuals no longer receiving care in the facility and the estimated corresponding changes in appropriation level necessary for the facility reducing population. Contains provisions concerning reporting requirements and the transfer of funds. Effective July 1, 2011.

House Committee Amendment No. 1
Removes State mental health facilities from the list of facilities the Department of Human Services must report to the General Assembly when the facility is scheduled to have or has a specified reduction in the number of individuals receiving care.

Governor Amendatory Veto Message
Recommends: deleting language providing that the Department of Human Services' report shall be given to "the General Assembly within 30 days of when a decision is made..."; and inserting language providing that the Department's report shall be given to "the General Assembly within 30 days of when a decision by the Secretary of the Department of Human Service is made...". Recommends adding language providing that "[n]otwithstanding any provision of law to the contrary, including, but not limited to..." specified provisions under the State Finance Act ... "the Department, at the direction of the Governor, shall transfer funds...as necessary to carry out the objectives of the Governor's long-term care rebalancing efforts or to otherwise facilitate the transition of services to the new venues of care...".
