The House version of the Fiscal Year (FY) 2004-2005 Department of Military Affairs budget. (Note: Gov. Jennifer Granholm’s proposed budget for this department is House Bill 5612 .) This appropriates $110.8 million in adjusted gross spending (funded from all sources, including special state restricted fund and federal pass-through dollars, minus interdepartmental transfers), compared to $102.8 million, which was the FY 2003-2004 amount enrolled in 2003. Of this, $38.5 million will come from the general fund (funded by actual state tax revenues), compared to the FY 2003-2004 amount of $37.1 million. The House version authorizes approximately $1 million more in gross spending than the governor recommended.
