To the Honorable Senate and House of Representatives:

I am filing for your consideration a bill entitled “Making an Appropriation for the Fiscal Year 2010 to Provide for Supplementing a Certain Existing Appropriation.”

 

This bill provides $41.9 million in additional funding in Fiscal Year 2010 for the Emergency Family Shelters program at the Department of Housing and Community Development. Supplemental funding is necessary due to the substantial growth in demand for shelter services, and it is essential that you approve this funding immediately to ensure there is no risk in the disruption of such services after January 1, 2010.

 

Sufficient revenues are estimated to be available to finance this appropriation.  I urge your prompt and favorable consideration of this bill.

Respectfully submitted,
 

                                                 DEVAL L. PATRICK,

                                                              Governor.
