(This amendment establishes the Veterans Services Foundation as an entity independent of the Department of Veterans Services, under the Secretary of Veterans and Defense Affairs, pursuant to Senate Bill 1075. A companion amendment makes corresponding reductions in Item 472 under the Department of Veterans Services. These amendments are contingent upon final passage of Senate Bill 1075 by the 2017 Session of the General Assembly. It is the intent of the General Assembly that the appropriate agency code for the Foundation will be added during enrollment.)
