The Governor's Emergency Fund is a separate line item in the Governor's Office. The Legislature appropriates funds with which the Governor may address a crisis or disaster without calling a special session. If funds are not used in a given fiscal year, they carry forward into the next fiscal year.
UCA 63J-1-217(4) authorizes the governor to allocate emergency funds to state agencies to cover costs that exceed revenues in a fiscal year.
The Governor's Office declined to submit performance measures for this line item.
Unexpended funds carry forward in the line item.
The $1,500 difference in the FY 2011 closing nonlapsing balance and the FY 2012 beginning nonlapsing balance is explained below.
On the 9th and 10th of June 2011, eight National Guard personnel were put on State Active Duty (SAD) orders to assist the helicopter operation in setting sandbags for the Weber River Floods. This was a State Activation of personnel and the National Guard requested funding from the Governor's Office in the amount of $1,500 to pay for personnel costs. This emergency was also supported and funded through federal funding and final payment for the total cost of the helicopter operation is pending. After receiving federal funding for the operation, the National Guard has set aside $1,500 to reimburse the emergency fund, thus, restoring it to $100,000.
