197.231 HONOR GUARDS.

The commissioner of veterans affairs shall pay, within available funds and upon request by a local unit of a congressionally chartered veterans organization or its auxiliary, up to $50 to the local unit for each time that local unit provides an honor guard detail at the funeral of a deceased veteran. The commissioner may give priority to local units that do not have charitable gambling operations. If the local unit provides a student to play "Taps," the local unit may pay some or all of the $50 to the student.
