Fiscal Detail and Notes
This bill authorizes various state agencies to pursue federal funding to establish, maintain and expand veterans treatment courts.  The permissive language of the bill does not require the Judicial Department to establish the veterans treatment courts.  It is unlikely the Judicial Department will move forward with this initiative without having secured adequate federal funding.  Therefore, no significant General Fund costs are anticipated.
