Chapter 131 AN ACT MAKING APPROPRIATIONS FOR THE FISCAL YEAR 2011 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.

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, 2010, and to make certain changes in law, 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 maintenance of the several departments, boards, commissions and institutions and other services, and for certain permanent improvements and to meet certain requirements of law, the sums set forth in sections 2, 2B, 2D, 2E and 3, for the several purposes and subject to the conditions specified in sections 2, 2B, 2D, 2E and 3, are hereby appropriated from the General Fund unless specifically designated otherwise, subject to the provisions of law regulating the disbursement of public funds and the approval thereof for the fiscal year ending June 30, 2011. 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 handicapped persons. All officials and employees of an agency, board, department, commission or division receiving monies under this act shall take affirmative steps to ensure equality of opportunity in the internal affairs of state government, as well as in their relations with the public, including those persons and organizations doing business with the commonwealth. Each agency, board, department, commission or division, 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, 2011 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 herein and to include a full statement comparing such actual and projected receipts in the annual report for said fiscal year pursuant to section 13 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.

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 2011 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.

Notwithstanding any general or special law to the contrary, the governor may allocate, at his full discretion, funds from the State Fiscal Stabilization Fund established by Title XIV of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009, P. L. No. 111-5; provided further, that said potential allocation is reflected in the following chart in the column entitled “Potential Allocation of Federal Funds from the ARRA State Fiscal Stabilization Fund”; provided further, that the funds set forth in said column are an estimated apportionment and shall not appear on the cherry sheet produced by the department of revenue.

For fiscal year 2011, when calculating the foundation budget for each district, the fiscal year 2011 Chapter 70 aid shall be valued at the greater of: (a) 96% of the total of fiscal year 2010 Chapter 70 aid and state fiscal stabilization fund allocations as outlined in section 3 of chapter 27 of the acts of 2009. This figure shall then be subtracted by the proportional potential allocation of state fiscal stabilization funds as listed below to determine Chapter 70 aid; or (b) foundation aid minus the proportional potential allocation of state fiscal stabilization funds as listed below. Non-operating districts shall receive the greater of: (a) 96% of the total of fiscal year 2010 Chapter 70 aid and state fiscal stabilization fund allocations as outlined in section 3 of chapter 27 of the acts of 2009, or (b) foundation aid; provided, that non-operating districts shall not receive state fiscal stabilization funds. The foundation budget categories for each district shall be calculated in the same manner as in fiscal year 2010. The target local share shall be calculated using the same methodology used in fiscal year 2010. Preliminary local contribution shall be the municipality’s fiscal year 2010 minimum required local contribution, increased or decreased by the municipal revenue growth factor; provided, that if a municipality's preliminary contribution as a percentage of its foundation budget is more than 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 10 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 2011 shall be, for any municipality with a fiscal year 2011 preliminary contribution greater than its fiscal year 2011 target contribution, the preliminary local contribution reduced by 30 per cent of the gap between the preliminary local contribution and the target local contribution. 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. No non-operating district shall receive chapter 70 aid in an amount greater than the district’s foundation budget.

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.

No payments to cities, towns or counties maintaining an agricultural school pursuant to 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 the executive office for administration and finance, pursuant to guidelines established by the secretary.

SECTION 7A. Notwithstanding any general or special law to the contrary, each secretary may, identify information technology related activities and related supporting financial functions common to the state agencies within the executive office and may designate such functions as core information technology functions. To improve administrative efficiency and preserve fiscal resources, the secretary may direct that core information technology functions be performed by the executive office or by state agencies designated by the secretary to perform those functions. The secretary may delegate the secretary’s signature authority for such functions to an officer or employee of an agency within the executive office.

The executive office or any state agencies designated to perform core information technology functions may charge the state agencies that receive such services for the reasonable costs of providing the services. Any employee transfers that occur in connection with the consolidation of core information technology functions within the executive office or state agencies shall not: (a) impair the civil service status of any such transferred employee who immediately before the effective date of that transfer either holds a permanent appointment in a position classified under chapter 31 or has tenure in a position by reason of section 9A of chapter 30; or (b) impair or change an employee's status, rights or benefits under chapter 150E.
