The executive recommendation for the Fiscal Year (FY) 2003-2004 Department of Military and Veterans Affairs budget. This appropriates $102.3 million in adjusted gross spending (funded from all sources, including state restricted fund and federal pass-through dollars, minus interdepartmental transfers), compared to $103.1 million, which was the FY 2002-2003 amount enrolled in 2002, excluding any supplemental appropriations, line-item vetoes, or later cuts. Of this, $36.0 million will come from the General Fund (funded by actual state tax revenues), compared to the FY 2002-2003 amount enrolled in 2002 of $40.0 million. This department operates programs intended to benefit state veterans, including the operation of two veterans’ homes, and also has the mission of ensuring the preparedness of the Michigan National Guard.
