Agency says it has taken steps to address problems in report
LANSING - For nearly two decades the Michigan veterans affairs department has failed to track performance or spending by organizations receiving state grants to help vets access benefits and other assistance. The Department of Military and Veterans Affairs also didn't make sure that county veterans counselors were properly trained or accredited, according to a report released Friday by the Michigan's Auditor General.
