Carry forward funds associated with implementation of settlement agreementAdds language that carries forward from the first year to the second year any unspent funds associated with implementation of the settlement agreement with the federal Department of Justice. All of the funds for implementation of this agreement were appropriated in FY 2013. If these funds are not carried forward, there will be no funding available in FY 2014 to meet the requirements.
Expand adult crisis services for the intellectually and developmentally disabledProvides additional funds for adult crisis services required by the settlement agreement with the federal Department of Justice.

Remove out-dated language for start-up fundsStrikes language associated with funds that were eliminated during previous budget reductions.
