H. 3220 provides that probate judges in each county shall keep an adequate supply of forms necessary for admission and commitment to the Department of Mental Health.
Pursuant to Section 2-7-76 of the South Carolina Code of Laws, 1976, the State Budget Division surveyed 23 counties on the Fiscal Impact Statement Team (FIST) network to assess the fiscal impact of this Bill. The responding counties indicated that the Department of Mental Health currently provides an adequate supply of these forms to the county probate courts at no cost. If that practice continues, there should be no additional costs to the counties or the State's General Fund with the enactment of this amendment.
