METHODOLOGY:

This bill appropriates $1 to the Department of Health and Human Services in FY 2018 for the purpose of addressing budget shortfalls at the Sununu Youth Services Center.  In addition, the bill requires providers involved in the delivery or care of infants born with and affected by prenatal drug or alcohol exposure to notify the Department of such condition.  Providers are also required to cooperate with the Department in the development of a plan of safe care.  The Department assumes that monitoring, tracking, and implementing plans of safe care will result in an indeterminable increase in expenditures.  The Department further notes that this section is necessary in order for the State to remain compliant with the federal Child Abuse Prevention and Treatment Act (CAPTA) and Comprehensive Addiction and Recovery Act (CARA).  The Department expects to administer a combined $130,000 per year of funds from these acts in FY 2018 and FY 2019.
