H.P. 433 - L.D. 570
An Act To Eliminate a Defunct Account in the Department of Agriculture, Food and Rural Resources
Emergency preamble. Whereas, Acts of the Legislature do not become effective until 90 days after adjournment unless enacted as emergencies; and
Whereas, in January 1995 the Legislature repealed statutory authority for the Maine Dairy Farm Stabilization Fund; and
Whereas, the repeal legislation did not provide for the disposition of the funds remaining on account; and
Whereas, the outlook for the economy of the State and the revenue projections for State Government require prompt action; and
Whereas, in the judgment of the Legislature, these facts create an emergency within the meaning of the Constitution of Maine and require the following legislation as immediately necessary for the preservation of the public peace, health and safety; now, therefore,
Be it enacted by the People of the State of Maine as follows:
Sec. 1. State funds eliminated. Notwithstanding any other provision of law, the State Controller shall merge with the General Fund unappropriated surplus the balance remaining in the Other Special Revenue Dairy Farm Stabilization Fund within the Department of Agriculture, Food and Rural Resources pursuant to the Maine Revised Statutes, Title 5, section 1508.
Emergency clause. In view of the emergency cited in the preamble, this Act takes effect when approved.
Effective March 20, 2003.
