Funding History

Funding Issues

Land Exchange Distribution Account Adjustment

Adjust the appropriation from the Land Exchange Distribution Account to bring it more in line with the revenues that are flowing into the account.

Reallocation to Executive Branch Ethics Commission

The Legislature has appropriated $50,000 to each of three ethics commissions as a nonlapsing reserve in case an investigation is needed. All funding has been appropriated to the Legislature (half to the Senate, half to the House). Since administration of the Executive Branch Ethics Commission is in the Department of Administrative Services, $50,000 needs to be reallocated from the Legislature ($25,000 from Senate, $25,000 from House) to DAS.
