NO FISCAL IMPACT

Janis Baron (866-3523)
TITLE: CONCERNING EXTENSION OF THE PROGRAM TO PROVIDE HOME- AND COMMUNITY-BASED SERVICES FOR PERSONS WITH MAJOR MENTAL ILLNESSES.
Summary of Assessment
Under current law, the Home- and Community-Based Services Program for persons with major mental illnesses is repealed, effective July 1, 1998. This bill repeals that provision. The bill is assessed as having no fiscal impact since it does not create a new program, but rather, permanently extends the statutory authority for an existing program. The bill is effective upon signature of the Governor.
