FY 2014-15 Year-to-Date Gross Appropriation.....................................................................

$1,232,694,000

 

Changes from FY 2014-15 Year-to-Date:

 

  1.  Constitutional Revenue Sharing. The Governor recommended $788,497,000 for constitutional revenue sharing in FY 2015-16, an increase of 3.1% over the January 2015 consensus estimate of payments in FY 2014-15. Constitutional revenue sharing is paid to cities, villages, and townships on a per-capita basis.

23,843,000

  2.  City, Village, and Township Revenue Sharing. The Governor reduced nonconstitutional (statutory) revenue sharing to CVTs by 2.3% to $243,040,000. The Governor removed the per capita payment option for CVTs with a population over 7,500 that was included in the FY 2014-15 budget. This would remove 101 local units of government (100 townships and 1 city) from eligibility for a payment, leaving 486 eligible local units, the same as in FY 2013-14.

(5,800,000)

  3.  County Revenue Sharing and County Incentive Program. The Governor increased revenue sharing funding for counties by $3.5 million to cover the cost of counties that return to State-paid revenue sharing for the first full or part-year of payments in FY 2015-16. The line item for County Revenue Sharing would receive $2.8 million and the County Incentive Program (which requires compliance with accountability and transparency requirements) would receive $700,000.

3,500,000

  4.  Financially Distressed Cities, Villages, and Townships. This grant program to CVTs with signs of probable financial distress would be reduced from $8.0 million in FY 2014-15 to $5.0 million in FY 2015-16.

(3,000,000)

  1.  City, Village, and Township Revenue Sharing Eligibility. The Governor deleted the distribution of $2.64659 per capita to CVTs with a population of over 7,500 that was in effect for FY 2014-15. Eligibility remains for CVTs that received a statutory revenue sharing payment in FY 2009-10 greater than $4,500. Those CVTs are eligible for up to 78.51044% of the payment received in FY 2009-10. (Sec. 20-952)

  2.  Accountability and Transparency.

(Sec. 20-952)

  3.  County Revenue Sharing Withholding. The Governor authorized the withholding of revenue sharing payments to a county if the county is more than three months delinquent in maintaining the county child care fund or State ward board and care chargeback obligations. These obligations relate to foster care and juvenile justice. (Sec. 20-952(4)(i))

  4.  Financially Distressed CVTs. The Governor delayed the report date for grant awards from March 15 to September 30. The Governor expanded examples of allowable uses for the grants. The Governor added replacement of critical infrastructure (instead of just repair), added repair or replacement of critical equipment owned by the CVT; permitted qualifying infrastructure to be either owned or maintained by the CVT (as opposed to "owned and maintained" by the CVT; allowed funds to be used to reduce any type of debt service obligations (not just obligations supported by the local general fund), and specified that shared services are provided in conjunction with another jurisdiction. The Governor also updated work project amounts and dates and removed the direction for Treasury to establish an application process and revised the language on the use of grants. (Sec. 20-956)

  5.  County Revenue Sharing - Statement of Purpose. The Governor added language to state that the purpose of the increased funding for county revenue sharing is to provide the funding allowed under Sec. 44a of the General Property Tax Act. (Sec. 20-957)
