3. Division of Financial Management
Request that the Board of Examiners direct the State Controller to complete the transfers authorized by SB 1445 within the limits established by the law for the purpose of balancing the state budget. The State Controller will report the actual transfer amount at the next Board of Examiners meeting.
Discussion: Mr. Hammon noted that this item will need to go onto the regular agenda for full discussion by the Board. The Board will have determination on the order of which funds are drawn. Even should the full committee act today with the Tax Commission’s item, this item’s transfers to balance the budget will still be required.
Mr. Hurst asked when they will know the actual amount to be transferred.
Mr. Hammon responded that after the books are closed somewhere around July 7-10, they will know. After the Controller’s office has processed all the transactions that are dated on June 30th, any unspended appropriation reverts, and DFM will look at the situation. An actual number will not be known until the second week of July. The Controller will make the transfers and will report back to the Board at the following July meeting what the transfer was.
Mr. Woolf asked if the Controller’s Office could be given a clear direction of the priority of transfers to be made.
Mr. Hammon answered in the affirmative and that the full Board will have that information in detail.
Resolution: Mr. Hammon moved to approve item 3 and place it on the regular agenda. Mr. Hurst seconded the motion. The motion carried on a unanimous voice vote.
