Withholding of Spending Authority

Page 497, line 27, after "5.", insert "a)".
Page 497, after line 31, insert:
"b)  In addition to the budget reduction plan approved by the Governor, all budget reduction proposals submitted by state agencies to the Governor or the Governor's staff, including but not limited to the Department of Planning and Budget, the Governor's Cabinet secretaries, or the Chief of Staff, whether submitted electronically or otherwise, shall be forwarded to the Chairmen of the House Appropriations and Senate Finance Committees concurrently with that budget reduction plan."

(This amendment restores language contained in the current Appropriation Act regarding the submission of agency budget reduction proposals to the Chairmen of the House Appropriations and Senate Finance Committees. The amendment modifies the existing language to direct that, rather than submit these plans within five days of their submission, these budget reduction plans be submitted concurrently with the Governor's submission of his approved budget reduction plan.)
