Sec. JJ-1. Interest earnings on bonds. Interest accruing to the proceeds of any bonds issued by the Maine Governmental Facilities Authority that are deposited to the construction fund held by the Maine Governmental Facilities Authority for the Bangor court facility must be used by the Judicial Department to offset the cost of any required payments made for interest or principal related to the issuance of these bonds. The interest earnings in the fund must be used for this purpose until exhausted.

Sec. JJ-3. Calculation of savings and deallocation of budgeted funds. The Commissioner of Administrative and Financial Services shall reduce allotments by financial order an equivalent amount from the General Fund account of the Judicial Department that provides for the payment of interest and principal for the Bangor Court House construction to be lapsed to the General Fund unappropriated surplus by June 30th of each fiscal year.
