(This amendment requests a nongeneral fund appropriation of $2.0 million in the first year and $1.5 million in the second year with the anticipation that the Department of Minority Business Enterprise will be receiving a grant from the federal government to implement a program researching SWAM business contracting with the state, developing training for contractors and vendors for best practices in an effort to increase contracting between state government and SWAM and veteran-owned businesses. It is expected that this grant funding would last no fewer than seven years and require DMBE to report to the federal government on an annual basis.)
