FY 2018 Budget FY 2018 Final Budget

About this step

The Governor has 10 days to review the budget and take action to either approve or veto the budget. The Governor may approve or veto the entire budget, veto or reduce specific line items, veto outside sections or submit changes as an amendment to the budget for further consideration by the Legislature.

Following any legislative overrides to the Governor's actions, the budget is finalized and is commonly referred to as the "General Appropriations Act" for the upcoming fiscal year.

Final Budget

Chapter 47

AN ACT MAKING APPROPRIATIONS FOR THE FISCAL YEAR 2018 FOR THE MAINTENANCE OF THE DEPARTMENTS, BOARDS, COMMISSIONS, INSTITUTIONS AND CERTAIN ACTIVITIES OF THE COMMONWEALTH, FOR INTEREST, SINKING FUND AND SERIAL BOND REQUIREMENTS AND FOR CERTAIN PERMANENT IMPROVEMENTS
The document is being worked on to include the Governor's actions and any Legislative actions.

     Whereas, The deferred operation of this act would tend to defeat its purpose, which is immediately to make appropriations for the fiscal year beginning July 1, 2017, and to make certain changes in law, each of which is immediately necessary or appropriate to effectuate said appropriations or for 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 the operations of the several departments, boards, commissions and institutions of the commonwealth and other services of the commonwealth and for certain permanent improvements and to meet certain requirements of law, the sums set forth in this act, for the several purposes and subject to the conditions specified, are hereby appropriated from the General Fund unless specifically designated otherwise, subject to the laws regulating the disbursement of public funds and the approval thereof for the fiscal year ending June 30, 2018. All sums appropriated under this act, including supplemental and deficiency budgets, shall be expended in a manner reflecting and encouraging a policy of nondiscrimination and equal opportunity for members of minority groups, women and persons with a disability. All officials and employees of an agency, board, department, commission or division receiving funds under this act shall take affirmative steps to ensure equality of opportunity in the internal affairs of state government and in their relations with the public, including those persons and organizations doing business with the commonwealth. Each agency, board, department, commission or division of the commonwealth, in spending appropriated sums and discharging its statutory responsibilities, shall adopt measures to ensure equal opportunity in the areas of hiring, promotion, demotion or transfer, recruitment, layoff or termination, rates of compensation, in-service or apprenticeship training programs and all terms and conditions of employment.
      SECTION 1A.  In accordance with Articles LXIII and CVII of the Articles of Amendment to the Constitution of the Commonwealth and section 6D of chapter 29 of the General Laws, it is hereby declared that the amounts of revenue set forth in this section by source for the respective funds of the Commonwealth for the fiscal year ending June 30, 2018 are necessary and sufficient to provide the means to defray the appropriations and expenditures from such funds for said fiscal year as set forth and authorized in sections 2, 2B and 2E. The comptroller shall keep a distinct account of actual receipts from each such source by each such fund to furnish the executive office for administration and finance and the house and senate committees on ways and means with quarterly statements comparing such receipts with the projected receipts set forth in this section, and include a full statement comparing such actual and projected receipts in the annual report for said fiscal year pursuant to section 12 of chapter 7A of the General Laws. The quarterly and annual reports shall also include detailed statements of any other sources of revenue for the budgeted funds in addition to those specified in this section.

SECTION 3 LOCAL AID DISTRIBUTIONS.

SECTION 3.  Notwithstanding any general or special law to the contrary, for the fiscal year ending June 30, 2018 the distribution to cities and towns of the balance of the State Lottery and Gaming Fund, as paid from the General Fund in accordance with clause (c) of the second paragraph of section 35 of chapter 10 of the General Laws, and additional funds from the General Fund and the Gaming Local Aid Fund, shall be $1,061,783,475 and shall be apportioned to the cities and towns in accordance with this section.
Notwithstanding section 2 of chapter 70 of the General Laws or any other general or special law to the contrary, except for section 12B of chapter 76 and section 89 of chapter 71 of the General Laws, for fiscal year 2018 the total amounts to be distributed and paid to each city and town from item 7061-0008 of section 2 shall be as set forth in the following lists. The specified amounts to be distributed from said item 7061-0008 of said section 2 shall be in full satisfaction of the amounts due under chapter 70 of the General Laws.
For fiscal year 2018, the foundation budget category of "low income enrollment" for the purpose of calculating foundation enrollment shall be the number of students identified as economically disadvantaged by qualifying as a match in the commonwealth's direct certification system through the executive office of health and human services virtual gateway system under the programs and categories of assistance used to match for the fiscal year 2017 foundation budget. The economically disadvantaged decile assignment and rate methodology shall be calculated in the same manner as in fiscal year 2017. The foundation budget rates for the employee benefits and fixed charges category will be increased to $432.24 for pre-school and half day kindergarten, $864.45 for full day kindergarten, $864.50 for elementary, $854.68 for middle school, $795.92 for high school, $3,288.93 for in-school special education, $520.05 for limited English pre-school and half day kindergarten, $1,025.80 for limited English all other grades, and $1,231.58 for vocational. All other foundation budget categories for each district shall be calculated in the same manner as in fiscal year 2017. The target local share shall be calculated using the same methodology used in fiscal year 2017. Preliminary local contribution shall be the municipality's fiscal year 2017 minimum required local contribution, increased or decreased by the municipal revenue growth factor; provided, that if a municipality's preliminary local contribution as a percentage of its foundation budget is more than 2.5 percentage points lower than the target local share, the preliminary contribution shall be recalculated using the municipality's revenue growth factor plus 1 percentage point; and if a municipality's preliminary contribution as a percentage of its foundation budget is more than 7.5 percentage points lower than the target local share, the preliminary contribution shall be recalculated using the municipality's revenue growth factor plus 2 percentage points. Minimum required local contribution for fiscal year 2018 shall be, for any municipality with a fiscal year 2018 preliminary contribution greater than its fiscal year 2018 target contribution, the preliminary local contribution reduced by 85 per cent of the gap between the preliminary local contribution and the target local contribution. No minimum required local contribution shall be greater than 90 percent of the district's foundation budget amount.
Required local contribution shall be allocated among the districts to which a municipality belongs in direct proportion to the foundation budgets for the municipality's pupils at each of those districts. For fiscal year 2018, the "foundation aid increment" shall be the difference between: (i) the positive difference between a district's foundation budget and its required district contribution; and (ii) prior year aid. The "minimum aid increment" shall be equal to $30 multiplied by the district's foundation enrollment minus the foundation aid increment.
Districts that are significantly and negatively impacted by the change in low-income enrollment measurement shall receive transitional relief as included in the chapter 70 distributions in this section. Chapter 70 aid for fiscal year 2018 shall be the sum of prior year aid plus the foundation aid increment, if any, plus the minimum aid increment, if any. No non-operating district shall receive chapter 70 aid in an amount greater than the district's foundation budget.
Transitional relief, if any, shall be added to the chapter 70 distribution of this section but shall not be added to base aid for the calculation of chapter 70 aid for fiscal year 2019. If there is a conflict between the language of this section and the distribution listed below, the distribution below shall control.
The department of elementary and secondary education shall not consider health care costs for retired teachers to be part of net school spending for any district in which such costs were not considered part of net school spending in fiscal year 1994, and for any district that has not accepted the provisions of section 260 of chapter 165 of the acts of 2014, provided that any district for whom such costs are not so considered shall have included as part of net school spending an amount equal to the increase in the foundation budget for the district associated with health care costs of retired teachers.

No payments to cities, towns or counties maintaining an agricultural school under this section shall be made after November 30 of the fiscal year until the commissioner of revenue certifies acceptance of the prior fiscal year's annual financial reports submitted pursuant to section 43 of chapter 44 of the General Laws. Advance payments shall be made for some or all of periodic local reimbursement or assistance programs to any city, town, regional school district, or independent agricultural and technical school that demonstrates an emergency cash shortfall, as certified by the commissioner of revenue and approved by the secretary of administration and finance, under guidelines established by the secretary.
