Explanation

The bill adds several duties to the Commissioner of the Department of Veterans' Affairs (DVA) which may result in a cost to DVA if the veterans' home closes.

The bill also requires DVA to report on implementing the Program Review and Investigations committee recommendations and provides more oversight to the DVA board of trustees which does not result in a fiscal impact.

House “A” struck the underlying bill and its associated fiscal impact. The substitute language results in the fiscal impact described above.

The Out Years

The annualized ongoing fiscal impact identified above would continue into the future subject to the closing of the veterans' home.
