Fiscal Detail and Notes
The bill allows the Department of Defense, Veterans and Emergency Management, Maine Emergency Management Agency, to requisition food supplies for emergency use and special duty assignments.  It is difficult to determine the number of emergencies, number of personnel needed for each emergency or the duration or severity of any emergency at this time.  During a non-federally declared emergency the cost would be shared 50% with state funding and 50% federal grant funds.  During federally declared disasters the cost would be reimbursable up to at least 75% with federal funds with any remainder covered by state funding.
