The second document lists the Department's accounts in numerical order. The columns detail the fiscal years 2009 appropriated amounts (pre and post all 9C budget reductions), the fiscal year 2010 appropriated amounts, and the Governor's vetoes and the variances to the original fiscal year 2009 General Appropriation Act, Chapter #182.
We will discuss these attachments and the budget process in greater detail at the September meeting.
