EXECUTIVE ORDER KBB 05-82

Executive Branch Expenditure Reduction


WHEREAS, pursuant to R.S. 39:75(A)(1), the Division of Administration is directed to submit a monthly budget status report to the Joint Legislative Committee on the Budget (hereafter "Committee"), indicating the balance of the budget for the state general fund and dedicated funds by comparing the official forecast for these funds to the total authorized appropriations for each fund; once approved by the Committee, the most recent budget status report becomes the official budget status of the state;

WHEREAS, if the most recently approved budget status report indicates that the total appropriation from any fund will exceed the official forecast for that fund, R.S. 39:75(B) mandates the Committee shall immediately notify the governor that a projected deficit exists for that fund;

WHEREAS, by letter dated October 31, 2005, the Committee notified the governor that it approved a budget status report at its October 31, 2005, meeting, indicating a projected deficit of nine hundred fifty-nine million sixty-two thousand dollars ($959,062,000) exists in the state general fund for fiscal year 2005-2006, based on the revised revenue forecast adopted by the Revenue Estimating Conference on October 28, 2005;

WHEREAS, once notified that a projected deficit exists, pursuant to Article VII Section 10(F), R.S. 39:75(C) and/or Section 10.A of Act No. 16 of the 2005 Regular Session of the Louisiana Legislature, the governor has interim budget balancing powers to adjust the budget, including the authority to reduce appropriations for the executive branch of government for any program that is appropriated from a fund that is in deficit posture, not exceeding ten percent (10%) in the aggregate of the total appropriations for each budget unit for the fiscal year, and if the governor does not make necessary adjustments in the appropriations within thirty (30) days of the determination of the projected deficit in a fund to eliminate the projected deficit, R.S. 39:75(D) mandates the governor shall call a special session of the Louisiana Legislature for that purpose;

NOW THEREFORE I, KATHLEEN BABINEAUX BLANCO, Governor of the state of Louisiana, by virtue of the authority vested by the Constitution and laws of the state of Louisiana, do hereby order and direct as follows:

SECTION 1: The following departments, agencies, and/or budget units (hereafter "Unit" and/or "Units") of the executive branch of the state of Louisiana, as described in and/or funded by appropriations through Act No. 16 of the 2005 Regular Session of the Louisiana Legislature (hereafter "Act No. 16") as well as constitutional requirements, shall reduce expenditure of funds appropriated to the Unit by Act No. 16 and/or constitutional requirements, including mid-year adjustments, in the amounts shown below:
