RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - Virginia needs to find cash for mental health patients, and fast!
The state has 10 days to come up with $30 million to avoid a lawsuit by the federal government.
Virginia has been ordered to correct problems found in a three-year probe of the state's mental health system.
It would actually take $2 billion over the next decade to make those corrections.
The initial cash is just a good-faith down payment.
