Parsley  7816


Senator Woelfel moved to amend the Committee on Health and Human Resources amendment on page 5, section 2, line 76, subparagraph (i), after the word “issues,” by inserting the words “The taskforce will also examine the situation of a resident who was transported from any location within or without the state of West Virginia and is discharged, evicted, or otherwise removed from a recovery residence, and whether or not a recovery residence should provide transportation to the location from which the resident was initially transported, at the expense of the recovery residence. The taskforce will additionally examine, the situation of a resident who may be discharged, evicted, or otherwise removed prior to the expiration of the time period for which he or she has previously paid rent or any other fee for residency or service, in the context of requiring the recovery residence to promptly report relevant information regarding the circumstances for  each early discharge, eviction, or removal of a resident to the Department of Health and Human Resources’ Bureau for Behavioral Health. The taskforce will further examine whether or not residents of a recovery residence should be granted any minimal tenancy rights or otherwise be considered a worthy recipient for relief from a magistrate court arising from their discharge, eviction, or removal from a recovery residence.”
