The authority for the Michigan Veterans’ Facility Ombudsman can be found
in Public Act 198 of 2016.
As a result of investigations, the Ombudsman makes recommendations to the veterans’ facilities when a concern is identified. The Ombudsman also makes recommendations to the Legislature, concerning changes to existing laws or suggestions for new laws whenever relevant. The ombudsman submits to the council, the board of managers, and the legislature a semiannual report on the conduct of the office.
