The 190th General Court of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts

AN ACT MAKING APPROPRIATIONS FOR THE FISCAL YEAR 2015 TO PROVIDE FOR SUPPLEMENTING CERTAIN EXISTING APPROPRIATIONS AND FOR CERTAIN OTHER ACTIVITIES AND PROJECTS.

      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 2015, the sums set forth in sections 2 to 2E, inclusive, 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, 2015.  These sums shall be in addition to any amounts previously appropriated and made available for the purposes of those items. These sums shall be made available until June 30, 2016. 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.
