An Act making appropriations for the fiscal year 2009 to provide for supplementing certain existing appropriations and for certain other activities and projects.
 

Whereas , The deferred operation of this act would tend to defeat its purposes, which are forthwith to make supplemental appropriations for fiscal year 2009 and to make certain changes in law, each of which is immediately necessary to carry out those appropriations or to accomplish other important public purposes, 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. To provide for supplementing certain items in the general appropriation act and other appropriation acts for fiscal year 2009, the sums set forth in section 2 are hereby appropriated from the General Fund unless specifically designated otherwise in this act or in those appropriation acts, for the several purposes and subject to the conditions specified in this act or in those appropriation acts, and subject to the laws regulating the disbursement of public funds for the fiscal year ending June 30, 2009.  These sums shall be in addition to any amounts previously appropriated and made available for the purposes of those items.  Notwithstanding any general or special law to the contrary, appropriations made in section 2 shall not revert and shall be available for expenditure until June 30, 2010.

Section   84.     Notwithstanding any general or special law to the contrary, the comptroller shall, no later than June 30, 2009, transfer the interest earned from the Commonwealth Stabilization Fund during fiscal year 2009 to the General Fund.  If the interest earned by the Commonwealth Stabilization Fund during fiscal year 2009 is less than $91,000,000 then the amount transferred shall be $91,000,000.
