Notice of Hearing
Veterans Affairs
Notice is hereby given that the Department of Veterans Affairs will hold a public hearing on the 14th day of April, 2000, at 9:00 a.m., in the 8th floor board room at 30 West Mifflin Street in Madison, Wisconsin.
Analysis Prepared by the Department of Veterans Affairs
Statutory authority: ss. 45.35 (3) and (14) (h) and 45.356 (7)
Statutes interpreted: ss. 45.35 (14) (h), 45.351 (lj), and 45.356
In relation to the health care aid grant program, the proposed rule would raise the income eligibility limit for low income applicants on January 1 rather than on July 1 of each year. The increase in the eligibility limit would then coincide with cost of living adjustments for federal benefit programs and assure continued eligibility for low income veterans.
In relation to the personal loan program, the proposed rule would permit each spouse in a married couple, in which both spouses are veterans, the opportunity to receive a personal loan in the amount of $10,000, or an aggregate amount of $20,000. Under current rules, such a couple would be limited to an aggregate amount of $10,000 in personal loan program proceeds. It would recognize the service of each veteran under these circumstances.
In relation to tribal grant agreements, the proposed rule would identify the eligibility criteria for federally recognized American Indian tribes and bands who seek to receive a service officer grant. The legislature created the program through the enactment of 1999 Wis. Act 9 and directed the department to promulgate rules to implement the program.
Internal Regulatory Flexibility Analysis
This rule is not expected to have an adverse impact on small businesses.
