Substitute offered in the Senate on May 15, 2002
To replace the Senate-passed version of the bill with a version which makes some changes in the funding amounts, and in certain “boilerplate” language requiring or prohibiting various conditions and actions. Among these are small changes in various line items, thereby providing "points of difference" between the Senate- and House-passed versions of the bill. This allows Senate members of a likely House-Senate conference committee to negotiate these items. Unless there is a point of difference, technically a conference committee may not change a particular provision. The substitute was amended to cap Economic Development Job Training Grants (EDJT) to universities at $500,000 each, and one grant per year per university.
The substitute passed by voice vote in the Senate on May 15, 2002
Amendment offered by Sen. Shirley Johnson (R) on May 16, 2002
To eliminate a provision that requires the Family Independence Agency to provide welfare clients with eligibility guidelines for post-employment training. This has to do with the issue of one department budget containing instructions for a different department.

The House-Senate conference report for the FY 2002-2003 Department of Career Development and the Michigan Strategic Fund budgets. This appropriates $605.9 million in adjusted gross spending (funded from all sources, including special state restricted fund and federal pass-through dollars, minus interdepartmental transfers), compared to $706.2 million, which was the FY 2001-2002 amount enacted in 2001, excluding any supplemental appropriations. Of this, $64.5 million will come from the General Fund (funded by actual state tax revenues), compared to the current year’s $91.0 million. The conference report includes a number of specific line item cuts, but states that these would restored if a tobacco tax is approved. It also provides for a one percent department-wide operational expenses cut, with the specifics to be determined by the department, and reflects savings to come from a state employee early retirement pension enhancement program. There are actual cuts in some programs funded by the budget, and some funding source shifts from state to federal dollars.
