Subchapter 004 : Receipts(Cite as: 32 V.S.A. § 511)
§ 511. Excess receipts
If any receipts, including federal receipts, exceed the appropriated amounts, the receipts may be allocated and expended on the approval of the Commissioner of Finance and Management. If, however, the expenditure of those receipts will establish or increase the scope of the program, which establishment or increase will at any time commit the State to the expenditure of State funds, they may only be expended upon the approval of the General Assembly. Excess federal receipts, whenever possible, shall be utilized to reduce the expenditure of State funds. The Commissioner of Finance and Management shall report to the Joint Fiscal Committee quarterly with a cumulative list and explanation of the allocation and expenditure of such excess receipts. The provisions of 2 V.S.A. § 20(d) (expiration of required reports) shall not apply to the report to be made under this section. (Added 1997, No. 147 (Adj. Sess.), § 261; amended 2009, No. 67 (Adj. Sess.), § 83, eff. Feb. 25, 2010; 2013, No. 142 (Adj. Sess.), § 60.)
