Budget Surplus FY2013

Fiscal year 2013, which ended June 30, 2013, finished with about $76 million in unspent revenue. The sum of money that lawmakers actually have at their disposal is actually much smaller, because the two-year budget they approved this past session anticipated a surplus and counted on transferring about $57 million to pay for services in the current fiscal year. Still, that leaves about $19 million available.

Two options are:

  1. Depositing the money into the rainy day fund
  2. Restoring some of the back of the budget cuts to Health and Human Services.
