House: Engrossed Second Substitute House Bill 1450 (mental health/involuntary outpatient) provides that persons meeting certain criteria may be committed by a court for involuntary outpatient mental health treatment on an assisted outpatient treatment order. Implementation of the bill is expected to increase community mental health outpatient costs and result in some reduction in community psychiatric inpatient costs. Funding is provided for the expected net increase in costs for the community mental health and alcohol and substance abuse programs.

Senate: Same as House except that the Senate budget references Engrossed Second Substitute Senate Bill 5649 (mental health/involuntary outpatient).
