THE MANAGEMENT AND BUDGET ACT (EXCERPT)
Act 431 of 1984
18.1395 Financing from federal, state restricted, local, or private funding; financing by multiple fund sources; spending of state matching money; reductions; notice; adjustments; corrective action; prohibited transfer.
(1) Appropriation line items in a budget act financed from federal, state restricted, local, or private funding authorize spending only for the amount of the funds actually earned up to the amount appropriated. When an appropriation line item that is financed from federal, state restricted, local, or private funding sources is earning funds less than the appropriated amount, the department shall reduce the overall level of expenditures from the appropriation line item to reflect the estimated funding shortfall. In an appropriation line item financed by multiple fund sources, any state general fund/general purpose appropriation shall be used only after the federal, state restricted, local, or private funds have been expended.
(2) Except as otherwise provided in this section, spending of state matching money in an appropriation shall be maintained in the proportion appropriated. When federal money is earned in an amount less than appropriated and the matching requirements have not been reduced, spending of any state matching appropriation shall be reduced accordingly.
(3) When federal matching formulas are adjusted to increase the federal share of the costs of a program, spending of any state matching appropriation shall be reduced accordingly. Within 15 days after receipt of a notice of such a change, the state agency shall notify the state budget director. The state budget director shall within 15 days make a recommendation to the senate and house appropriations committees and the fiscal agencies to adjust existing appropriations to implement the change in the federal matching rate.
(4) When federal matching formulas are adjusted to reduce the federal share of the costs of a program, the affected state agency shall notify the department. After receipt of the notice of such a change the state budget director shall take appropriate corrective action. For purposes of this subsection, a transfer to increase the state matching appropriations shall not be permitted under section 393(1).
