RICHMOND — The fate of a state budget amendment pertaining to the Southwestern Virginia Training Center in Carroll County is now in the hands of House and Senate budget conferees.
The amendment introduced by Del. Jeff Campbell (R-6th District) would prohibit the discharge of residents at the mental health facility if they or their legally authorized representatives choose to remain there.
The facility is slated to close next year, unless the state intervenes. It houses about 80 residents.
