Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Community Services Act. Provides that the Department of Human Services' report on a scheduled reduction in individuals receiving care at a State developmental disabilities facility shall be given to the General Assembly within 30 days of when a decision by the Secretary of the Department is made to decrease the population (rather than within 30 days of when a decision is made to decrease the population). Provides that the Department, at the Direction of the Governor, (rather than the Department) shall transfer funds from the facility realizing a reduction in the number of individuals served to the appropriate line item providing appropriation authority for the new venues of care, 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. Exempts such transfers from specified provisions of the State Finance Act. Effective immediately.
