1995-01-19 House Journal Page 0082 HB 100 HOUSE BILL NO. 100 by the House Rules Committee by request of the Governor, entitled: "An Act making appropriations for the operating and loan program expenses of state government and to capitalize funds; making appropriations under art. IX, sec. 17(c), Constitution of the State of Alaska, from the constitutional budget reserve fund; and providing for an effective date." was read the first time and referred to the Finance Committee. The Governor's transmittal letter, dated January 19, 1995 appears below: "Dear Speaker Phillips: Under the authority of art. III, sec. 18, of the Alaska Constitution, I am transmitting legislation making appropriations for operating and loan program expenses for fiscal year 1996. AS 37.07.020 requires the Governor to submit an appropriation bill to authorize proposed expenditures to the Legislature before the fourth legislative day. I am separately transmitting two appropriation bills: the attached bill for "general government operations" and another for "formula-funded programs." The general government operations bill reflects the budget turned over to me by my predecessor on December 5 and which I presented to you on December 15, 1994. The only number change is the actual request of the Alaska Court System as submitted to my office after the December 5 budget was prepared. We continue to review the previous administrations budget and to analyze its effect upon the services the state provides. In February, I will transmit my amendments to reflect the budgetary priorities of my 1995-01-19 House Journal Page 0083 HB 100 Administration. At that time, I will make every effort to give you the full picture of FY96 budget needs and potential cost savings. Sincerely, /s/ Tony Knowles Governor"
