1An Act to repeal
46.40 (14m); to amend
46.031 (title) and 46.031 (1) (a); and 2to create
46.82 (3) (a) 21. of the statutes; relating to: annual submittal to the
3department of health and family services of budgets for contracted services and
4for community aids.
Analysis by the Legislative Reference Bureau
Under current law, county departments of social services, human services,
community programs, and developmental disabilities services must annually
submit to the department of health and family services (DHFS) by December 31 final
budgets for all services directly provided or purchased. In addition, tribes and those
county departments must annually submit to DHFS by December 1 proposed
budgets for the expenditure of community aids funds.
This bill eliminates the requirement that county departments of social services,
human services, community programs, and developmental disabilities services and
tribes submit proposed community aids budgets to DHFS. The bill, instead, expands
the requirements for annual submittal to DHFS of budgets for all services directly
provided and purchased to include submittal by aging units that are county units
separate from county departments and that contract with DHFS for provided and
purchased services. Lastly, the bill requires that the submittal of these final budgets
by the specified aging units and by county departments be made by December 1.

enact as follows:
