Rep Brann LARA DIFS budgets clear appropriations subcommittee

first_img Includes health care study to save taxpayer money 22Mar Rep. Brann: LARA, DIFS budgets clear appropriations subcommittee State Rep. Tommy Brann, chair of the House Appropriations Subcommittee on the Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs (LARA) and the Department of Insurance and Financial Services (DIFS), today announced the panel has approved budget plans for the coming fiscal year.Brann, of Wyoming, said the recommended spending blueprints are fiscally responsible and include no fee increases. He said the DIFS budget includes a study that could save taxpayer money.“We include funding for a health care study that could lead to Michigan being granted a waiver from some aspects of the Affordable Care Act (ACA),” Brann said. “Through this study we can get a true reflection of how the ACA is being utilized in Michigan and see if we cannot modify it to be more effective and efficient, which will save taxpayer money.”The LARA budget recommendation from the governor includes a $61.3 million expenditure providing grants to improve the statewide use of assigning defense attorneys to people who are charged with crimes but cannot afford a lawyer. While the subcommittee retained the money in its recommendation, Brann said that the method of distributing the funds could change as the budget continues to move forward.“This is just the beginning of the budget process, and this extremely important issue deserves further review,” Brann said. “We will continue to gather information and talk with local communities and the Michigan Indigent Defense Commission to ensure we find the best path forward for this vital piece of the state’s legal system.”The budget recommendations now go to the full House Appropriations Committee for consideration.#####center_img Categories: Brann News,Newslast_img read more
