Overview The Department of Agriculture promotes Michigan agricultural products and protects the public from disease and unsanitary conditions in food production and handling; regulates product labeling and producer practices for dairy products, animals, and plants; and enforces consumer protection laws in food, standard weights/measures, animal health, plant pests, and diseases. Summary of Major Budget Issues HB 5857 H-3 differs from the H-1 Committee-passed substitute in that it restores $9, funding; $5, for the Dairy inspection program, and $4, for migrant labor housing inspection. The H-3 Substitute does not recognized increases in dairy inspection fees or migrant labor housing inspection fees proposed by the Executive. The H-3 Substitute restores $3.9 million in revenue from the Refined Petroleum Fund that had not been included in the H-1 Committee Substitute.
