this bill is really a technical correction to billing practices for some students in facilities. the formula in current law is prorated based on months, which has to be calculated as a fraction since students are in the facilities for portions of months or multiple months. Changing the reference to days is more easily understood and implemented. We have no objections to this bill moving forward and it makes sense to fix this nuance in the statute.
