Certified to be Effective: 11-15-13 thru 1-20-14

Rules Suspended: 274-030-0625(T)

Subject: The rule restated the budget note that was part of the Department’s 2013–2015 budget. The budget note described a 1 million grant program for counties. The budget note stated that each of the 34 counties with a county veterans service office will receive a base amount of funds and that $600,000 must be awarded in the form of competitive grants.

   The Department is suspending this rule because it only reiterates the budget note information and the rule is not needed.
