An Act   authorizing the transfer of certain funds within the Trial Court .


   Whereas, The deferred operation of this act would tend to defeat its purpose, which is to authorize forthwith the transfer of certain Trial Court funds , therefore it is hereby declared to be an emergency law, necessary for the immediate preservation of the public convenience.

Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives in General Court assembled, and by the authority of the same, as follows:

              SECTION   1.     Notwithstanding clause (xxiii) of the third paragraph of section 9 of chapter 211B of the General Laws or any other general or special law to the contrary, the chief justice for administration and management may, from the effective date of this act through April 30, 2010, transfer funds from any item of appropriation within the trial court, except items 0339-1001 and 0339-1003, to any other item of appropriation within the trial court, except items 0339-1001 and 0339-1003. These transfers shall be made in accordance with schedules submitted to the house and senate committees on ways and means. The schedule shall include the following: (1) the amount of money transferred from any item of appropriation to another; (2) the reason for the necessity of the transfer; and (3) the date on which the transfer is to be completed. A transfer under this section shall not occur until 10 days after the revised funding schedules have been submitted in written form to the house and senate committees on ways and means.

SECTION 2.   This act shall take effect as of July 1, 2009.
