780.904 Crime victim's rights fund; creation; investment; expenditures; use of additional excess revenue; expenditure for statewide trauma system; limitation.
(1) The crime victim's rights fund is created as a separate fund in the state treasury. The state treasurer shall credit to the fund all amounts received under this act and as provided by law. The state treasurer shall invest fund money in the same manner as surplus funds are invested under section 3 of 1855 PA 105, MCL 21.143. Earnings from the fund shall be credited to the fund.
(2) The fund shall be expended only as provided in this act. Amounts in the fund in excess of the necessary revenue determined by the commission under section 3(a) may be used for crime victim compensation under 1976 PA 223, MCL 18.351 to 18.368. Any additional excess revenue that has not been used for crime victim compensation may be used to provide for establishment and maintenance of a statewide trauma system, including staff support associated with trauma and related emergency medical services program activities. Not more than $3,500,000.00 shall be expended for this purpose from the fund in any fiscal year. For the 2014-2015 fiscal year only, not more than $4,800,000.00 shall be expended for this purpose from the fund.
(3) Beginning October 1, 2018, the amount expended for the statewide trauma system from the fund shall not exceed 50% of the maximum allowable under subsection (2), unless the amount expended is reasonably proportional to crime victims' utilization of the statewide trauma system.
