         The Governor’s revised budget recommendations for FY 2009 are contained in 2009-H 5019,
         introduced on January 7, 2009. For the second year, it was not submitted along with his FY 2010
         recommendations due to the severe current year deficit that required faster action to insure the state
         would end in balance and be able to meet its financial obligations. Staff estimated the deficit to be
         $366.8 million. The Revenue Estimating and Caseload Estimating conferences had significantly altered
         revenue and caseload estimates in November based on rising unemployment rates, a deteriorating
         economy, and unachieved Medicaid savings.

         The economy appears to be deteriorating at a faster rate than forecast, revenues are running behind
         estimates, and the unemployment rate is rising faster than anticipated in the caseload estimates. In
         addition, the FY 2008 closing deficit worsened.

         The House Finance Committee Chair and the Senate Finance Committee Chair communicated to the
         Administration their concerns about endangering the state’s ability to close the current fiscal year
         without a third consecutive deficit. However, the Governor submitted a thirteenth budget amendment
         request on March 9 in which he recommended using federal stimulus funds and additional tax increases
         to restore a number of reductions he had initially recommended and continued his recommendation to
         use the rainy day fund to eradicate the $43.0 million FY 2008 closing deficit. The Administration
         indicated that there was not a back up plan for any deterioration estimated in the May conferences.

         The Budget recommended by the House Finance Committee in 2009-H 5019, Substitute A, is based
         upon positioning Rhode Island’s finances to maximize the state’s ability to react to deteriorating
         revenues by not committing funding that may not materialize come May revenue estimates. It holds
         the rainy day fund in reserve in the event of bad news in May and maintains most of Governor
         Carcieri’s January proposed expenditure and revenue measures.

         The Budget recommended by the House Finance Committee increases spending recommended by the
         Governor by $241.9 million, of which $270.7 million is from federal funds, mostly the result of the
         American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009, or stimulus. The total $7,223.2 million revised
         budget is $304.2 million more than originally enacted by the 2008 Assembly and $295.2 million more
         than FY 2008 actual expenditures. Again, most of the change is in federal funds, $391.4 million more
         than enacted and $450.2 million more than FY 2008.

         The Committee recommends $3,028.8 million from general revenues, $57.7 million less than the
         Governor, $274.4 million less than enacted, and $376.5 million less than FY 2008. All changes to the
         Governor’s revised budget are noted on the tables that follow this section, which in turn are followed
         by brief explanations of the changes. The major items are noted here.

         • Rainy Day Fund. The Governor recommended that the Assembly appropriate $38.4 million from
         the Budget Reserve to liquidate the FY 2008 closing deficit, but recommends changing the statutes to
         not repay in FY 2009 as required, deferring the repayment to FY 2010. That amount subsequently
         became $43.0 million. The House Finance Committee avoids using our rainy day fund to close the

         budget gap – it holds it in reserve in the event of bad news in May when there would be little time to
         make major revisions prior to the end of the fiscal year.

         • Pension Change. The Governor included savings of $112.3 million, including $95.1 million from
         general revenues, by amending the retirement statutes to eliminate cost-of-living adjustments for all
         state employees, including judges and teachers who do not retire by April 1. The amendment would
         also increase the minimum age for state employees and teachers retiring after April 1 to receive
         pension payments to age 59. Those estimates were included without benefit of the actuarial studies
         required by sections 12.1-1 of Title 22 and 10-9 of Title 36 of the Rhode Island General Laws or
         appropriate legal analysis of the proposal. Actuarial analysis dated January 28 indicated most of the
         budgeted savings are unachievable. The study reduced projected savings to $39.2 million.

         The Governor subsequently requested an amendment to 2009-H 5019 on March 9 that would make the
         changes apply to state employees and teachers that are not eligible to retire prior to July 1 rather than
         those that had not retired by April 1. His actuarial analysis estimated savings of $54.3 million.

         The House Finance Committee does not include the pension changes at this point, but does set aside
         the Governor’s originally estimated savings. It commits in Article 11 to making pension changes that
         are actuarially tested and that demonstrate the necessary due diligence to ensure they treat employees
         and taxpayers fairly, address the system’s unfunded liability, and produce immediate savings for FY
         2009 and FY 2010. The funds set aside would then be used to fund those changes with any balances
         returned to the appropriate funds, including local teacher pension shares.

         • Enhanced Medicaid Stimulus. The Governor included $27.5 million in additional Medicaid
         matching funds, thereby reducing general revenue expenditures by the same amount based on the
         assumption that the Congress would pass stimulus legislation that would raise the federal Medicaid
         match percentage by 300 basis points retroactive to January 1. The Committee includes $140.5
         million based upon passage of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 in February.

         • Local Aid. The Governor included savings of $72.3 million from reducing local aid including
         $55.1 million from suspending general revenue sharing, eliminating education aid payments from 24-3
         video lottery gaming effective December 1, 2008, and eliminating the Professional Development
         program education aid distributions of $5.8 million. He also includes $9.4 million from accelerated
         pay back of overpaid Providence school construction aid. In March he requested an amendment to
         reverse a number of these recommendations.

         The Committee concurred with his original recommendations pending the May Revenue and Caseload
         Estimating Conference results and maximized use of education fiscal stabilization stimulus funds to
         free up $38.3 million from general revenues. The Committee also adjusted construction aid payback
         to an installment basis consistent with prior practice.

         • Revenues. The Governor included $41.1 million in additional ongoing revenues from increasing
         the cigarette tax by $1.00 per pack, increasing the insurance gross premiums tax paid by health
         maintenance organizations from 1.75 percent to 2.0 percent consistent with all other insurers, doubling
         vehicle title fees and significantly increasing reinstatement fees for revoked or suspended titles,
         licenses and registrations, and selling state land. The Committee includes $29.0 million. It concurred
         with most of the recommended revenue items except the land sales, adjusted the estimates for later
         implementation and new data, and increased the tax on other tobacco products not included by the
         Governor.

         • Local Pothole Funding. The Committee includes a 2 cent per gallon increase to motor fuel taxes
         for local governments for road and street repairs from winter damage and to the Rhode Island Public
         Transit Authority for deficit relief. The pothole fund would receive the entire amounts during the
         April – September construction and repair seasons in 2009 and 2010, distributed half on the basis of
         population and half on miles of non-federal aid system roads and streets. The Authority would receive
         the full amounts in the other months, and permanently beginning October 1, 2010. The Governor’s
         FY 2010 budget appears to compound the Authority’s existing deficit estimates by withdrawing general
         revenue support.

         • Medical Providers. The Governor recommended $26.0 million in reduced payments to hospitals,
         nursing homes, and other service providers.     The Committee concurred with his original
         recommendations pending the May Revenue and Caseload Estimating Conference results.

         • Department and Agency Reductions. The Governor included $21.5 million in net expenditure
         adjustments within the agencies and departments. The House Finance Committee increased that
         amount to $28.7 million, including further reductions to salaries and benefits, operating costs, and
         consultants.

         The House Finance Committee made a number of additional adjustments described on the pages that
         follow. Its recommended budget would leave a general revenue surplus of $4.0 million. Subsequent
         to its decision-making, however, the Governor submitted a fourteenth amendment request. It has not
         yet been analyzed by the Committee, but appears to include some items that will likely have to be
         funded prior to the end of the fiscal year.

                                  FY 2009 Revised Changes to Governor
                                                   Revenue Changes

         1.     SBA Loan Credits. The Governor recommended reinstating the tax credit allowed for loan
         guaranty fees paid to the United States Small Business Administration, effective for tax years
         beginning after December 31, 2008. He subsequently withdrew the Article based upon passage of the
         American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 which provides some or all of the goals of this
         article in the short term through 2010. The House Finance Committee concurs.

         2.    Insurance Gross Premiums. The Governor requested an amendment to remove the gross
         premiums tax exemption from Medicaid managed care providers. They would be subject to two
         percent tax he proposes in Article 14 of 2009-H 5019, which raises the tax from the current rate of
         1.75 percent. He includes $9.0 million in revenue from the proposal. The House Finance Committee
         concurs.

         3.     Nursing Home Tax Correction to Gov. The Governor’s revised budget recommends a series
         of expenditure reductions to nursing homes that will lower their revenues by $15.0 million which
         would decrease their provider tax liability. The House Finance Committee restores $3.5 million of the
         proposed expenditure reductions and corrects an oversight in the calculations which would result in a
         tax loss of $573,602, which is $250,022 less than assumed in the budget.

         4.    Cigarette Tax - April 10. The Governor’s revised budget included $17.4 million from
         increasing the cigarette tax by $1.00 per pack to $3.46, eliminating minimum markup provisions, and
         reducing the distributors’ stamping discount, effective February 3, 2009. He subsequently requested an
         amendment that would maintain the minimum markup and stamping discount, and make the tax
         increase effective April 1, 2009. The House Finance Committee includes $13.1 million based upon
         an April 10 start date, which is $4.3 million less than the Governor’s original estimate.

         5.   OTP to 80 Percent of Price. The House Finance Committee recommends increasing the tax on
         smokeless tobacco, snuff, and pipe tobacco from 40 percent of wholesale price to 80 percent which
         would result in $1.0 million in additional revenue annually and $333,333 for FY 2009.

         6.    License Reinstatement – Other. The Governor proposed legislation as part of his FY 2009
         revised budget to increase the fee for restoration of revoked or suspended licenses from $75 to $250
         estimated to yield $1.5 million in additional revenues based upon 21,040 reinstatements, effective
         February 1. The House Finance Committee recommends increasing this fee from $75 to $150, which
         would generate an additional $1.6 million annually and $0.4 million for the remainder of FY 2009,
         $1.1 million less than the Governor’s proposal.

         7.     License Reinstatement DUI. The current fee for the restoration of revoked or suspended
         licenses is $75. The House Finance Committee recommends increasing this fee from $75 to $350 for
         reinstatements from driving under the influence of alcohol. Assuming 5,343 reinstatements consistent
         with FY 2008, this would generate an additional $1.5 million annually and $0.4 million for FY 2009.

         8.     Registration Reinstatements. The Governor submitted legislation as part of his FY 2009
         budget to increase the fee for restoration of revoked registrations from $50 to $250 effective February
         1. The revised budget includes $358,417 in additional revenues based on assuming the same 4,301
         reinstatements as FY 2008. A two-month delay to April 1 reduces the revenue yield by $143,367.
         The House Finance Committee concurs and includes the adjustment.


                                                           13

         9.     Titles. The Governor submitted an article as part of his FY 2009 budget to double the
         certificate of title for regular and salvage vehicles from $25 to $50. The Budget Office indicates that
         in FY 2008, 155,133 titles were issued. Assuming the same number of transactions, the revised
         budget assumes $1.3 million in additional revenues, which has been pro-rated for a March 1, 2009
         effective date. A one-month delay to implement the fee increase would result in $0.2 million less
         revenues. The House Finance Committee concurs and adjusts the revenues.

         10. Health Department Grants. The Governor requested an amendment to increase revenues by
         $134,802, including $124,802 from the Choices for Self Care Challenge grant and $10,000 from the
         American Cancer Society grant. This is consistent with expenditures from these grants he included in
         his revised budget. The challenge grant will support a statewide chronic disease self-management
         program for adults 60 and over and the Cancer Society grant will support women’s cancer screening
         activities. The House Finance Committee concurs.

         11. Forand Land Sale. The Governor’s FY 2009 revised budget includes legislation in Article 49
         of 2009-H 5019 for the sale of the Forand property to the Rhode Island Housing and Mortgage
         Finance Corporation. The revised budget assumes $6.0 million in revenue from the sale. The state
         owns the land and the 2008 Assembly approved $16.9 million from Rhode Island Capital Plan funds to
         renovate the building to be used as the new registry for the Division of Motor Vehicles. If a developer
         were to purchase and renovate the facility, the state would be required to make annual lease payments
         for 20 to 30 years. The House Finance Committee does not concur and reduces revenues accordingly.

         12. Garrahy Land Sale. The Governor’s revised budget includes $6.0 million in land sale revenues
         for the Garrahy Garage. Legislation included in Article 49 of 2009-H 5019 would authorize the state
         to enter into a long-term parking lease with an unnamed quasi-public agency for parking spaces in a
         new parking facility near the current Garrahy Courthouse and develop a financing structure to provide
         benefits to the state from the project developer. In the past, similar proposals were introduced, and the
         2008 Assembly repealed the authorization for the state to enter into a long-term parking lease for
         spaces in a parking garage. The House Finance Committee does not recommend the sale of this land,
         which would be consistent with legislation passed by the 2008 Assembly.

         13. Pastore Land Sale. The Governor’s FY 2009 revised budget includes $4.0 million for the land
         between Pontiac and Howard Avenue, formerly slated for the new State Police headquarters. Rhode
         Island Housing would then issue a request for proposals for prospective developers for the
         development of a multiple use complex to include but not be limited to office space, retail, restaurant,
         residential and institutional use. The Governor subsequently requested an amendment to withdraw this
         item but includes it in his FY 2010 budget. The House Finance Committee removes the revenues.

         14. TDD Relay Account. The Governor’s revised budget includes the transfer of $385,246 from
         the Dual Party Phone Relay escrow account to the general fund by June 30, 2009. The resources are
         from a monthly surcharge of $0.09 for each landline telephone in the state and used to support
         communication access to the deaf population. The Governor subsequently requested a budget
         amendment to reduce the amount transferred by $202,000 to $183,246, to maintain adequate funding
         to pay the vendor providing the service. The House Finance Committee concurs with the transfer and
         adjusts the revenues.

         15. Stimulus. The House Finance Committee recommends use of $243.5 million from federal
         stimulus funds that were not included in the Governor’s original budget recommendations. The Act
         passed on February 17, 2009 and the single largest impact is from an enhanced federal reimbursement




                                                            14

         for Medicaid expenses.     There are also significant new resources for education, energy, and
         transportation.

         16. Rhode Island Capital Plan Funds. The House Finance Committee recommendations includes
         $16.7 million less from Rhode Island Capital Plan funds for capital projects than was included in the
         Governor’s FY 2009 revised budget. The adjustments primarily reflect more updated information on
         progress of projects.

         17. Other. The House Finance Committee recommendations use $72.7 million more from all other
         sources of funds than assumed in the Governor’s original revised budget. These changes generally
         reflect updated information as well as adjustments for unemployment benefit payments.

                                                Expenditures Changes

                                                    Administration

         18. Brown Lease Settlement. The Governor’s budget added $150,000 from general revenues to
         pay the fee for the early termination of the Department of Business Regulation’s December 2006 three-
         year lease agreement with Brown for space at 233 Richmond Street, Providence. The Department
         relocated to state owned space in July 2008, requiring the lease settlement. The total settlement cost
         now appears to be $156,524 and can be made in three payments: two payments totaling $90,762 in FY
         2009 and $65,762 by December 31, 2009, which is FY 2010. The Governor’s requested an
         amendment to provide only $90,762 for FY 2009, $59,238 less than budgeted, consistent with the
         settlement agreement. The House Finance Committee concurs.

         19. Budget Office Personnel and Operating. The Governor’s revised budget includes $2.0 million
         from general revenues to fund personnel and operating costs for the State Budget Office. This reflects
         a reduction of $0.1 million from the enacted budget primarily for turnover savings. The 2009 enacted
         budget provided staffing of 17.0 positions and it appears the Office had numerous positions vacant
         earlier in the fiscal year. The House Finance Committee recommends an additional $55,845 in
         savings.

         20. Capital - Cannon Building. The Capital Budget includes Rhode Island Capital Plan fund
         expenditures of $1.1 million to be used through FY 2012 for ongoing repairs and renovations at the
         Cannon Building, of which $150,000 is for FY 2009. The House Finance Committee recommends
         $70,000 less in FY 2009 to reflect current expenditures.

         21. Capital - Cranston Street Armory. The Capital Budget includes Rhode Island Capital Plan
         funds expenditures of $12.5 million for the Cranston Street Armory project, of which $4.2 million will
         be used from FY 2010 through FY 2012 for ongoing renovations. The House Finance Committee
         recommends $650,000 less in FY 2009 to reflect current expenditures.

         22. Capital - Forand Building Exterior. The FY 2009 revised budget includes $1.2 million from
         Rhode Island Capital Plan funds to replace and repair the Forand building’s spandrel panels, doors and
         windows, and soffits. The House Finance Committee recommends $100,000 less to reflect revised
         project costs.

         23. Capital - Health Laboratory Building. The revised budget includes $175,500 from Rhode
         Island Capital Plan funds to conduct a feasibility study for a new facility to house the staff and
         programs currently located in the Chapin Building. This study would also examine the feasibility of



                                                          15

         combining the Health and Forensic crime lab at the Pastore center. To date, only $500 has been spent.
         The House Finance Committee recommends shifting this project to FY 2011 to reflect project delay.

         24. Capital - Pastore Center Power Plant. The Governor’s Capital Budget includes $1.1 million
         in expenditures from Rhode Island Capital Plan funds to bring one of the central power plant’s boilers
         to a high state of reliability. The House Finance Committee recommends shifting $0.8 million from
         FY 2009 to FY 2011 to reflect a project delay.

         25. Capital - Pastore Utilities Upgrade. The Governor’s FY 2010 through FY 2014 Capital
         Budget includes $8.4 million from Rhode Island Capital Plan funds to be used through FY 2013 to
         repair and make improvements to the electrical distribution system on the Pastore center. An
         engineering survey was conducted in 2001 and concluded that the existing system is undersized and
         would possibly not support major future construction projects like the Re-integration Center, the new
         training school and others. The total project cost is consistent with the approved plan; however, funds
         were shifted to better reflect anticipated expenditures. The House Finance Committee recommends
         $650,000 less in FY 2009 to reflect current expenditures.

         26. Capital – Registry. The Governor’s revised budget includes $1.7 million from Rhode Island
         Capital Plan funds in FY 2009 to renovate the Forand Building to be the new home of the Registry of
         Motor Vehicles. The operating budget shows this expenditure in the Department of Administration’s
         budget; however, the Governor’s Capital Budget shows this expenditure in the Department of
         Revenue. The House Finance Committee recommends moving this project into the Department of
         Revenue to be consistent with the Capital Budget.

         27. Capital - Virks Building Renovations. The revised budget includes $2.0 million from Rhode
         Island Capital Plan funds to renovate the Virks Building to be used as office space by human services
         agencies, most of which are currently in the Forand Building. To date, $0.3 million for architectural
         and engineering service expenses have already occurred. The Governor subsequently requested an
         amendment to reduce expenditures by $1.7 million, because it appears that the project cannot move
         forward as approved. The House Finance Committee recommends the reduction.

         28. Capital - Washington County Govt. Center. The Governor’s Capital Budget includes
         $244,472 from Rhode Island Capital Plan funds for parking repaving, elevator repairs, and fire code
         compliance work at the Washington County Government Center in FY 2010. Based on a project
         delay, the House Finance Committee reduces FY 2009 expenditures by $150,000; however provides
         $425,000 through FY 2014 for asset protection.

         29. Info. Technology Technical Correction. The Governor’s revised recommendation for the
         Division of Information Technology inadvertently overstates expenditures from non-general revenue
         sources by $6.1 million. He subsequently requested an amendment to correct the error. The House
         Finance Committee concurs.

         30. Investment Receipts Bond Funds. Subsequent to his budget submission, the Governor
         recommends expenditures of $100,000 from investment of bond fund proceeds for arbitrage analysis
         and for payments to the Internal Revenue Service if earnings exceed the allowable arbitrage limits.
         The Internal Revenue Service regulations govern arbitrage on the proceeds from issuance of
         governmental securities. The House Finance Committee concurs.

         31. Low Income Heating Assistance Program. On September 30, the President signed into law
         H.R. 2638, the Consolidated Security, Disaster Assistance, and Continuing Appropriations Act, which



                                                           16

         nearly doubled funding for the Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program. A total of $40.0
         million was allocated to Rhode Island. Subsequent to his budget submission, the Governor
         recommended an additional $8.6 million from federal funds to reflect the increased funding available
         for the program. The House Finance Committee recommends the additional funds.

         32. Motor Vehicle Excise Tax Adjustment. The Governor recommended $135.3 million or $4.2
         million less than enacted to fund the Motor Vehicle Excise Tax reimbursements based on updated data,
         which shows that the growth rate from FY 2008 to FY 2009 was actually 0.1 percent. The enacted
         budget assumed a growth rate of 3.2 percent. Subsequently, the Governor requested an amendment to
         further reduce expenditures by $10,036 to reflect final numbers received from municipalities. The
         House Finance Committee concurs.

         33. Neighborhood Stabilization to RI Housing. The Governor included $10.0 million in new
         federal funds to help assist in the redevelopment of abandoned property and foreclosed homes. He
         subsequently requested an amendment to transfer $9.9 million to Rhode Island Housing and Mortgage
         Finance Corporation in order to expedite the expenditure of the funds. The Office of Housing and
         Community Development will still administer the program. The House Finance Committee concurs.

         34. PILOT Correction. The Governor’s revised budget includes the enacted amount of $27.8
         million to fund the Payment in Lieu of Taxes program, which reimburses cities and towns for property
         taxes that would have been due on real property owned by nonprofit educational institutions, nonprofit
         hospitals, or any state-owned hospital, veterans’ residential facility or correctional facility, which is
         exempt from taxation by state law. Subsequently, he requested an amendment to reduce payments for
         the program by $186,558 based upon a review of qualifying properties on the Pastore Center. The
         House Finance Committee includes the adjustment.

         35. Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative. The FY 2009 revised budget includes expenditures of
         $1.3 million from the Regional Greenhouse Gas restricted receipt fund. This is $1.2 million more
         than the enacted budget to reflect actual receipts from the sale of emission allowances from the
         regional auctions held last September and December. The Governor subsequently requested an amendment
         to provide an additional $2.4 million in expenditures based on anticipated sale of greenhouse gas allowances.
         The House Finance Committee recommends the additional funds.

         36. Statewide Consulting (10%, 2 months). The Governor’s FY 2009 budget includes $54.5
         million from general revenues for expenditures the state classifies as contracted services, often referred
         to as consultants. These expenditures reflect the compensation paid for the services of non-employee
         individuals or firms and include payments to professional practitioners and other independent
         contractors who sell their services. The House Finance Committee reduces these expenditures by
         $909,000, which equates to a 10.0 percent reduction for two months.

         37. Statewide S&W/Operating (5%, 1 mos.). The Governor’s FY 2009 revised budget includes
         $886.4 million from general revenues for expenditures the state classifies as salaries and benefits and
         other state operations. The House Finance Committee recommends reducing these expenditures by
         $3.7 million, which equates to 5.0 percent for one month.

         38. Stimulus – Office of Energy Resources. On February 17, President Obama signed the
         American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009. It includes $3.1 billion for the State Energy
         Program, which provides direct funding to state energy offices which the states use to address energy
         priorities and programs to adopt or support energy efficiency and renewable energy programs and
         strategies. It appears Rhode Island will receive $24.3 million. The Act also provides $300.0 million



                                                              17

PDF created with pdfFactory trial version www.pdffactory.com
         for the Low Income Energy Efficiency Appliance Rebate Program, which provides rebates to eligible
         residential consumers who purchase energy efficient appliances. Subsequent to his budget submission,
         the Governor requested an amendment to add $3.8 million to recognize these new federal awards. The
         House Finance Committee concurs.

         39. Stimulus – Weatherization. On February 17, President Obama signed the American Recovery
         and Reinvestment Act of 2009. The Act provides $5.0 billion nationally to be used through federal
         fiscal year 2010 for the Weatherization Assistance Program, which provides cost effective, energy
         efficient weatherization improvements. It also provides low-income individuals, particularly elderly,
         persons with disabilities, families with children, high residential energy users, and households with a
         high energy burden, with weatherization improvements to lower utility costs. It appears that Rhode
         Island will receive $20.5 million. Subsequent to his budget submission, the Governor requested an
         amendment to add $2.5 million for FY 2009. His FY 2010 budget recommendation includes $9.0
         million. The House Finance Committee recommends the additional funds.

         40. Support for Justice Commission. The Central Business Office has continued to provide staff
         support for the activities of the Rhode Island Justice Commission, which was transferred to the
         Department of Public Safety in the enacted budget. Since the transfer will not be complete until March
         2009, the Office may charge some of its expenses to federal grants related to the Commission.
         Accordingly, the Governor requested an amendment to reduce general revenues by $23,034 and offset
         that by a like amount from federal funds. The House Finance Committee concurs.

         41. Unachievable/Unresolved Statewide Pension Savings. The Governor’s revised budget assumes
         savings of $43.0 million, including $25.9 million from general revenues, in savings from proposed
         pension reductions for state employees contained in Article 32 of his budget. These include setting the
         minimum retirement age at 59 for all state employees and teachers and eliminating the annual cost-of-
         living adjustments for state employees, teachers, judges and state police that retire after April 1, 2009.
         He would also exclude overtime and other items from the benefit calculation for State Police pensions,
         moving those to a three-year average of regular compensation like other employees. He subsequently
         revised his proposal to exclude those eligible to retire before July 1, 2009 from the changes.

         Actuarial analyses of both proposals found the budgeted savings estimates to be too high. The
         amended proposal yields only $28.8 million in savings for FY 2009. However, if the actuaries were to
         restate the contribution rate to show those savings, the new rate would have to account for the FY
         2009 loss of $19.6 million from the reduction in the payroll base from the surge of retirements
         prompted by retiree health changes that were effective October 1, 2008. This results in net savings of
         $9.2 million, of which $6.7 million would be from general revenues. This would require adding back
         $33.9 million including $19.3 million from general revenues. The Governor’s amendment proposes
         adding back the full $43.0 million of assumed savings.

         The House Finance Committee recommends diverting the budgeted savings into a special fund pending
         the adoption of pension changes that would produce significant savings for FY 2009.

         42. Weatherization Assistance. The Governor’s FY 2009 revised budget includes $1.0 million
         from federal funds for the Weatherization Assistance program. The program provides low-income
         individuals, particularly elderly, persons with disabilities, families with children, high residential
         energy users, and households with a high energy burden, with weatherization improvements to lower
         utility costs. Subsequently, the Governor requested an amendment to add $1.0 million based on a
         supplemental award from the Department of Energy. The House Finance Committee includes the
         additional funds.

         43. Capital - Center General Roof. The Governor’s FY 2009 revised budget includes $5,631 from
         Rhode Island Capital Plan funds in FY 2009 for architectural services for the replacement of the slate
         roof on several buildings at the Center General Complex. The House Finance Committee shifts this
         funding to FY 2010 based on a project delay.

         44. Reed Act Unemployment Benefits. Subsequent to his budget submission, the Governor
         recommends allocating $2.6 million of Reed Act funds available, but not currently budgeted. This
         includes $2.1 million for the payment of unemployment insurance benefits and $0.5 million for related
         administrative expenses.

         45. Senior Community Service Employment. The Governor requested an amendment to his
         revised budget to restore $516,848 from federal funds for the Senior Community Service Employment
         Program, which was inadvertently omitted from his original recommendation.

         46. Stimulus - Income Support. The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act funds additional
         weeks of payments to many unemployment insurance recipients and an additional $25 per week to each
         recipient beginning February 28, 2009. It is expected to increase expenditures by $16.3 million,
         including $0.2 million allotted for administration expenses. The House Finance Committee includes
         the additional funding, consistent with the revision the Governor requested.

         47. Stimulus - Workforce Development. The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act provides
         additional funds for Employment Services and Workforce Investment Act programs that help adults,
         youth and dislocated workers. It is expected to increase expenditures by $0.8 million and the House
         Finance Committee includes the additional funding.

         48. Unemployment Insurance Benefits. The Governor’s revised budget includes $333.4 million
         from the Employment Security Fund for the payment of unemployment insurance benefits, which is
         $102.7 million more than enacted. Subsequently, he requested an amendment increasing funding by
         $28.7 million from the Employment Security Fund for the payment of unemployment insurance
         benefits, due to prolonged increased unemployment rates for the state. The House Finance Committee
         concurs.

                                               Department of Revenue

         49. Capital – Registry. The Governor’s Capital Budget includes $1.7 million from Rhode Island
         Capital Plan funds to renovate the Forand Building to be the new home of the Registry of Motor
         Vehicles. The operating budget shows this expenditure in the Department of Administration’s budget;
         however, the Governor’s Capital Budget shows this expenditure in the Department of Revenue. The
         House Finance Committee recommends moving this project into the Department of Revenue to be
         consistent with the Capital Budget and provides $1.2 million based on anticipated expenditures for FY
         2009.

         50. Elections. The Governor’s FY 2009 revised budget includes the enacted amount of $853,072
         from general revenues for printing expenses. Subsequently, the Governor requested an amendment to
         reduce that by $19,238 based on revised costs. The House Finance Committee concurs.

         51. State Archives. The Governor’s FY 2009 revised budget includes the enacted amount of
         $186,000 for the rental of outside property, though it transfers $76,380 from restricted receipts to
         general revenues to reflect lower than previously estimated restricted receipts in the Historical Records
         Trust Fund. Subsequently, the Governor requested an amendment to add an additional $19,238 from
         general revenues for the same purpose, offset by an equal decrease in restricted receipts, since it
         appears that the lower revenues in the Historical Records Trust Fund cannot support this expense. The
         House Finance Committee concurs.

         52. Crime Victims Community Awareness. The Crime Victim Compensation program received a
         new $4,696 federal grant to support community awareness to be used to promote crime victims' rights
         and services during National Crime Victims' Rights Week, April 26 to May 2, 2009. The grant award
         occurred after submission of the Governor’s FY 2009 revised budget; he requested an amendment to
         include the funding, and the House Finance Committee concurs.

                                                   Governor's Office

         53. Contingency Fund. The Governor’s revised budget includes the enacted amount of $500,000 in
         expenditures for the contingency fund. The House Finance Committee reduces expenditures by $0.3
         million.

         54. Supplemental. The enacted budget assumes $91.1 million from all funds in statewide savings in
         the FY 2009 budget that was not reflected in the individual agency totals. The amount allocated to the
         Office is $259,932. The Governor’s FY 2009 revised budget includes an additional $524,677 in
         expenditures from general revenues above the enacted budget, adjusted for that allocation. It appears
         that the current staffing configuration costs more than funds provided in the enacted budget. The
         House Finance Committee recommends reducing the proposed funds by $0.4 million.

                                         Office of Health and Human Services

         55. Real Choices Transformation Grant. The Governor’s budget includes $791,696 from federal
         funds for project coordination, system design and marketing services through the real choices system
         change grant for community living. He subsequently requested an amendment to transfer $343,970 to
         the Department of Human Services. The House Finance Committee concurs.

         56. Stimulus – Medicaid Enhanced Match. The Governor’s budget includes statewide general
         revenue savings of $27.5 million from an anticipated three percent increase in the medical
         reimbursement rate from a then-pending federal stimulus package. He included savings of $46,026 in
         the Office of Health and Human Services’ budget however the Office’s budget only includes federal
         grants that are not Medicaid matched so the enhanced rate should not have been applied to the grants.
         The Governor subsequently requested an amendment to correct this, and the House Finance Committee
         concurs.

                                             Children, Youth and Families

         57. Anti-Gang Initiative Grant. The Governor’s revised budget includes $8,421 from federal
         funds for an Anti-Gang Initiative grant. He subsequently requested an amendment to increase the grant
         by $10,000. This grant will provide technology to develop a gang database at the Rhode Island
         Training School for Youth. The House Finance Committee concurs.

         58. Capital – North American Family Institute. The House Finance Committee recommends
         shifting $550,000 from Rhode Island Capital Plan funds from FY 2009 to FY 2011 based on delayed
         repairs to the North American Family Institute on New London Avenue in Cranston.

         59. Community Service Grants Restoration. The FY 2009 enacted budget includes $164,323 from
         general revenues for twelve community service grants; however the community service grants to be
         awarded total $165,247, which is $924 more than included in the enacted budget. The House Finance
         Committee recommends adding $924 from general revenues to fully fund the grants.

         60. Parental Contributions. The Governor’s revised budget includes $80,000 from restricted
         receipts for parental contributions. He subsequently requested an amendment to include an additional
         $81,000 from restricted receipts based on larger than anticipated payments. The parental contribution
         account is a restricted receipt account that maintains child support payments made for children in the
         Department’s custody. The House Finance Committee concurs.

         61. Stimulus - Medicaid Enhanced Match. The Governor’s FY 2009 recommended budget
         includes general revenue savings of $1.5 million in the Department of Children, Youth and Families
         budget from an anticipated three percent increase in the Medicaid rate to 55.57 percent effective
         January 2009. The Governor has requested an amendment based on passage of the federal stimulus act
         that increases the rate to 63.9 percent effective October 2008, which reduces general revenue expenses
         by $3.5 million. The House Finance Committee concurs.

         62. Stimulus - Title IV-E Enhanced Match. The Governor requested an amendment to his FY
         2009 recommended budget to include $1.3 million of general revenue savings within the Title IV-E
         foster care and adoption programs in the Department of Children, Youth and Families. The savings
         were based on passage of the federal stimulus package, which includes an enhanced reimbursement rate
         of 58.77 percent effective October 2008, an increase of 6.2 percent. The House Finance Committee
         concurs.

                                            Elderly Affairs and Advocacy

         63. Adult Day Care April 1 Co-Pay Increase. The Governor’s Budget includes general revenue
         savings of $55,845 from an April 1 co-payment increase for clients receiving subsidized adult day
         care. The Budget assumes a $4.00 per day increase for clients with incomes below $14,100, for a
         total daily cost of $11.00 and $6.50 per day for clients with incomes up to $24,179 for a total cost of
         $18.00 per day. The House Finance Committee did not concur and restores the savings.

         64. Community Service Grants Correction. The Governor’s revised budget includes $4,187 to
         correct the intended funding for the East Providence Senior Center grant for FY 2009; however the
         correct amount to be restored is $2,092 and the House Finance Committee reduces funding by $2,095
         to reflect that. The FY 2008 enacted budget included 10.0 percent reductions to all senior center
         grants; however, this grant was inadvertently reduced by 20.0 percent. The 2008 Assembly restored
         $4,187 to correct the funding as part of the FY 2008 revised budget, but since the 50.0 percent
         reduction to community service grants for the FY 2009 enacted budget were based on the FY 2008
         enacted funding level, this grant was underfunded $2,092.

         65. RIPAE. The Governor’s revised budget assumes $200,000 of general revenue savings from
         increasing expenditures supported by rebate receipts from the enacted level of $620,000 to $820,000
         based on available receipts carried forward from FY 2008. He subsequently requested an amendment
         to further increase rebate use by $150,000 in lieu of a like amount of general revenues based on more

         updated rebate receipt collection estimates. Total expenditures from rebates would be $970,000, which
         is $350,000 more than enacted. The House Finance Committee concurs.

         66. Stimulus - Medicaid Enhanced Match. The Governor’s FY 2009 recommended budget
         includes general revenue savings of $0.2 million in the Department of Elderly Affairs’ budget from an
         anticipated three percent increase in the Medicaid rate to 55.57 percent effective January 2009. The
         Governor has requested an amendment based on passage of the federal stimulus act that increases the
         rate to 63.9 percent effective October 2008, which reduces recommended general revenue expenses by
         $0.5 million. The House Finance Committee concurs.

         67. Children Partnership Grants. The Governor’s revised budget includes $115,000 from federal
         funds for the Emergency Medical Services for Children Partnership grant which focuses on improving
         the national pediatric emergency care infrastructure. He subsequently requested an amendment to add
         $47,313 from unspent resources from the prior year. The House Finance Committee concurs.

         68. Clinical Lab Improvement Act. The Governor’s revised budget includes $52,925 for the
         Clinical Lab Improvement Act. The Governor subsequently requested an amendment that adds $18,602
         more in federal funds to ensure quality laboratory testing. The House Finance Committee concurs.

         69. Drinking Water Infrastructure. The Governor requested an amendment to add $2,600 more
         available from Safe Drinking Water Act federal funds. The House Finance Committee concurs.

         70. Facility Regulations. The Governor’s revised budget includes $0.9 million from federal funds
         to support regulations of facilities that receive Medicaid funding. He requested an amendment to add
         $160,393 based on revised cost estimates. The House Finance Committee concurs.

         71. Food Facility Inspections. The Governor’s revised budget includes $0.2 million from federal
         funds for food safety inspections. He subsequently requested an amendment to add $162,443 in
         federal funds carried from FY 2008. The House Finance Committee concurs.

         72. Healthcare Facilities. The Governor’s recommended budget includes $1.5 million from federal
         funds for nursing home facility regulations. The Governor subsequently requested an amendment that
         adds $0.3 million more from federal funds for continuation of survey and certification of nursing home
         facilities. The House Finance Committee concurs.

         73. HIV Electronic Information Data System. The Department of Health’s revised budget adds
         $90,487 from new federal funds to enhance capacity for the development of an electronic HIV data
         system. The Governor subsequently requested an amendment to include the funding, and the House
         Finance Committee concurs.

         74. Mammography Quality Standards. The Governor’s revised budget includes $41,521 from
         federal funds for activities under the Mammography Quality Standards Act. He subsequently
         requested an amendment to include new federal funding of $150,878 to support this activity. The
         House Finance Committee concurs.

         75. Motor Vehicle Surveillance. The Governor’s revised budget includes $72,233 from federal
         funds to conduct a survey of injuries that result from motor vehicle accidents. He requested an
         amendment to add $17,767 carried forward from FY 2008. The House Finance Committee concurs.

         76. Prescription Drug Monitoring Program. The Governor’s revised budget includes $200,000
         from a federal grant for the development and enhancement of prescription drug monitoring. He
         subsequently requested an amendment to add $72,911 carried forward from FY 2008. The House
         Finance Committee concurs.

         77. Research Triangle Institute. The Governor’s revised budget includes $158,596 from federal
         funds for the Research Triangle Institute to support an analysis of Rhode Island Laws to determine if
         there are any negative consequences to individuals or patients by sharing personal health information
         with providers and health care organizations in other states. He has requested an amendment to add
         $41,755 carried forward from FY 2008. The House Finance Committee concurs.

         78. Stimulus – Medicaid Enhanced Match. The Governor’s recommended budget assumes
         passage of a federal stimulus package that includes a 3.0 percent increase in the Medicaid rate to 55.57
         percent. The Governor’s FY 2009 revised budget shifts $65,503 of general revenue expenses to
         federal funds to account for this savings. The Governor has requested an amendment based on passage
         of the federal stimulus act that increases the rate to 63.9 percent effective October 2008, which reduces
         general revenue expenses by an additional $28,240. The House Finance Committee concurs.

                                                    Human Services

         79. CAP Grants Restoration. The enacted budget includes $2.7 million from general revenues to
         support 98 social service agencies including $555,374 for eight community action agencies. The
         Governor’s revised budget reduces funding for only the community action agencies by a total of
         $100,000. The Governor requested a budget amendment to restore this reduction. The House Finance
         Committee concurs with this restoration.

         80. Capital - Blind Vending Facilities. The approved five year capital plan includes a total of
         $125,000 in FY 2009 and $150,000 annually for the ongoing construction and renovation of statewide
         blind vending facilities. The Governor reduces the amount for FY 2009 by $62,500. The House
         Finance Committee recommends further reducing this amount by $30,000 based upon current
         expenditures.

         81. Hospital Payment Error.          The Governor included Article 39 to reduce payments to the
         hospitals in the FY 2009 enacted    budget. However, that adjustment reduced more than had been
         enacted by $0.5 million including   $1.0 million from general revenues. The Governor subsequently
         requested a budget amendment that   corrected the error. The House Finance Committee concurs.

         82. Katie Beckett. The Governor included Article 36 of his FY 2009 revised budget to create a
         resource test for families eligible to receive medical assistance funding through the Katie Beckett state
         option. He subsequently requested that the article be withdrawn and funding be restored. The House
         Finance Committee restores full funding of $492,900.

         83. Match Rate Correction - Blind Services. The Governor’s revised budget identifies various
         state funded programs that became eligible for federal financial participation under the provisions of
         the global waiver. This includes $138,390 for services to the blind, which the revised budget could be
         matched at the standard federal match rate of 52.57 percent. The Governor subsequently requested an
         amendment indicating the costs were administrative, and the correct match would be 50.0 percent,
         requiring the addition of $3,557 from general revenues in lieu of federal funds. The House Finance
         Committee concurs with this restoration.

         84. Medicare Part D Clawback Enhanced Rate. The Governor’s recommended budget includes
         savings from an enhanced Medicaid rate included in the federal stimulus package; however, the
         enhanced rate was not applied to the $43.2 million state payment that is made for the Medicare Part D
         pharmacy clawback. The House Finance Committee includes an adjustment to reflect the enhanced
         rate and reduces general revenues by $7.7 million for a total state payment of $35.5 million.

         85. Real Choices Transformation Grant. The Governor’s budget includes $343,970 from federal
         funds for project coordination, system design and marketing services through the real choices system
         change grant for community living in the Executive Office of Health and Human Services. He
         subsequently requested an amendment to transfer the grant to the Department of Human Services. The
         House Finance Committee concurs.

         86. Stimulus - Medicaid Enhanced Match. The Governor’s FY 2009 recommended budget
         includes general revenue savings of $19.5 million in the Department of Human Services’ budget from
         an anticipated three percent increase in the Medicaid rate to 55.57 percent effective January 2009. The
         Governor has requested an amendment based on passage of the federal stimulus act that increases the
         rate to 63.9 percent effective October 2008, which reduces general revenue expenses by $71.4
         million. The House Finance Committee concurs.

         87. Stimulus - Child Care Block Grant. The Governor’s FY 2009 revised budget includes $1.2
         million from federal funding for the Child Care Development Block Grant. The Governor requested
         an amendment based on passage of the federal stimulus act that includes an additional $0.5 million.
         The House Finance Committee concurs.

         88. Stimulus - Child Support Enforcement. The Governor’s FY 2009 revised budget includes
         $1.2 million from federal funding for the Department of Human Services for incentive payments for
         the Office of Child Support Services. The Governor has requested an amendment based on passage of
         the federal stimulus act that includes an additional $0.8 million for additional incentive payments. The
         House Finance Committee concurs.

         89. Stimulus - Community Service Block Grant. The Governor’s FY 2009 revised budget
         includes $3.8 million from federal Community Services Block grant funding for the Department of
         Human Services. The Governor has requested an amendment based on passage of the federal stimulus
         act that includes an additional $1.5 million for benefit enrollment coordination at the community action

         an additional $8.1 million, primarily for benefits. The House Finance Committee concurs.

         91. Stimulus - Vocational Rehab. The Governor’s FY 2009 revised budget includes $21.9 million

         savings, including $0.8 million from general revenues, from an initiative consistent with the global
         waiver to provide self directed care and customized benefit packages based upon medical need. The
         Governor subsequently requested an amendment restoring the savings due to a delay in the

         implementation of this initiative. Adjusted for the enhanced Medicaid match rate included in the
         federal stimulus, $616,038 from general revenues is required to restore funding for the unachieved
         savings. The House Finance Committee concurs with this restoration.

         93. Unachieved Emergency Room Copays. The Governor’s FY 2009 revised budget assumes $0.2
         million in savings, including $0.1 million from general revenues by instituting a $25 co-payment for

         subsequently requested an amendment to restore these savings due to a delay in implementation.
         Adjusted for the enhanced Medicaid match rate included in the federal stimulus, $82,138 from general
         revenues is required to restore funding for the unachieved savings. The House Finance Committee

         amendment to restore the savings due to a delay in the implementation of the proposal. Adjusted for
         the enhanced Medicaid match rate included in the federal stimulus, $944,592 from general revenues is

         restore funding for the unachieved savings. The House Finance Committee concurs.

         96. Unachieved Pharmacy Savings. The Governor’s FY 2009 revised budget assumes savings of
         $1.9 million, including $0.8 million from general revenues from reimbursing pharmacies at maximum
         allowable cost and contracting with a single pharmacy network to achieve better pricing. The
         Governor subsequently requested an amendment to restore the savings due to a delay in the
         implementation of the proposal. Adjusted for the enhanced Medicaid match rate included in the
         federal stimulus, $722,818 from general revenues is required to restore funding for the unachieved
         savings. The House Finance Committee concurs.

         providers for four services. These include inpatient psychiatric, outpatient surgical, durable medical
         equipment and anti-psychotic drugs. The Governor subsequently requested an amendment to restore
         the savings due to a delay in the implementation of the proposal. Adjusted for the enhanced Medicaid
         match rate included in the federal stimulus, $410,692 from general revenues is required to restore
         funding for the unachieved savings. The House Finance Committee concurs.

         99. Capital – Hospital Consolidation. The approved capital plan includes a total of $8.2 million
         from Rhode Island Capital Plan funds to consolidate Eleanor Slater Hospital operations. This includes
         $0.5 million for FY 2009, $4.5 million for FY 2010 and $3.2 million for FY 2011. The Department
         has spent $320,000 for architectural and engineering services in the current year, and the House
         Finance Committee shifts $180,000 in unspent funds to FY 2012.

         100. Capital - DD Community Facilities. The approved five-year capital plan includes a total of
         $8.0 million for asset protection projects at the state’s 270 group homes for the developmentally
         disabled. The Department spent $1.1 million for FY 2009, which is $0.4 million less than the
         approved plan, and the House Finance Committee reduces funding accordingly.

         101. Capital - MH Community Fac. Repairs. The approved five year capital plan includes a total
         of $1.4 million for asset protection and emergency repairs to the 23 community facilities and seven
         centers housing indigent mental health clients. The Department has spent $160,000 in FY 2009, which
         is $90,000 less than approved, and the House Finance Committee reduces funding to reflect this.

         102. Capital - Pastore Asset Protection. The approved five-year capital plan includes a total of $6.8
         million from Rhode Island Capital Plan funds for ongoing maintenance of 11 buildings at the Pastore
         Center. The Department has spent $0.3 million, $0.5 million less than approved for FY 2009 and the
         House Finance Committee reduces funding accordingly.

         103. Capital - Substance Abuse Asset Protection. The approved five-year capital plan includes a
         total of $1.0 million for substance abuse asset protection projects, including $0.2 million annually.
         The Department has year to date expenses of $0.1 million, and the House Finance Committee
         recommends reducing funding for FY 2009 accordingly.

         104. Stimulus - Medicaid Enhanced Match. The Governor’s FY 2009 recommended budget
         includes general revenue savings of $6.3 million in the Department of Mental Health, Retardation and
         Hospitals’ budget from an anticipated three percent increase in the Medicaid rate to 55.57 percent.
         The Governor has requested an amendment based on passage of the federal stimulus act that increases
         the rate to 63.9 percent effective October 2008, which reduces general revenue expenses by $27.8
         million. The House Finance Committee concurs.

         105. Strategic Prevention Framework Grant. The Governor requested an amendment to add $4.3
         million from federal funds for the strategic prevention framework grant, which supports building
         substance abuse prevention capacity and infrastructure at the state and community levels. The grant
         was to be transferred from the Office of Health and Human Services to the Department of Mental
         Health, Retardation and Hospitals; however, it was inadvertently excluded from the Department’s
         recommended budget. The House Finance Committee concurs.

         106. Unachievable Costs Not Matchable. The state has received approval through the Medicaid
         Global Waiver to leverage federal funds effective January 1, 2009 for certain programs that were
         previously state-funded. The Governor’s FY 2009 recommended budget includes $10.5 million in
         savings across all agencies including $5.3 million for Mental Health, Retardation and Hospitals. The
         Governor requested an amendment to restore $748,606 of the assumed savings for inpatient
         detoxification services through Stanley Street Treatment and Resource (SSTAR). This is a licensed 20
         bed facility that is considered an institution for mental disease, which is excluded from receiving

         Medicaid reimbursement. The global waiver does not eliminate this exclusion. The House Finance
         Committee restores the funding.

         107. Unachieved Mobile Treatment Team Svcs. The Governor’s FY 2009 recommended budget
         includes savings of $105,200 from all sources, $50,000 from general revenues by reviewing current
         services provided to clients of the assertive community treatment program and adjusting services to
         meet current needs. This is consistent with the Department’s FY 2009 corrective action plan to cover
         its current year deficit. The Department then reported that the savings could not be achieved, and the
         Governor has requested an amendment to restore the savings. Adjusted for the enhanced Medicaid rate
         included in the federal stimulus, $41,104 from general revenues is required to restore funding for the
         unachieved savings. The House Finance Committee includes the funds.

                                       Governor's Commission on Disabilities

         108. Capital - Facilities Renovations. The approved capital plan includes a total of $1.2 million
         from Rhode Island Capital Plan funds through FY 2014 for facility renovations that promote access for
         persons with disabilities. The House Finance Committee further reduces FY 2009 funding by
         $245,000 to reflect current spending.

                                         Elementary & Secondary Education

         109. Capital – Davies Asset Protection. The House Finance Committee recommends reducing FY
         2009 expenditures by $0.1 million from Rhode Island Capital Plan funds for asset protection projects
         at the Davies Career and Technical Center to reflect planned expenditures. The recommendation
         provides $100,000 for FY 2009, $125,000 for FY 2010 and $150,000 each for FY 2011 through FY
         2013.

         110. Capital – Davies HVAC. The House Finance Committee recommends shifting $1.2 million
         from Rhode Island Capital Plan funds from FY 2009 to FY 2010 and FY 2011 based on a revised
         project schedule to replace the HVAC rooftop units at the Davies Career and Technical Center. Total
         funding of $2.0 million is as included in the approved capital plan. The project would be programmed
         as $0.1 million for FY 2009, $0.2 million for FY 2010 and $1.0 million for FY 2011.

         111. Capital – Davies Roof Repair. The House Finance Committee recommends shifting $1.0
         million from Rhode Island Capital Plan funds from FY 2009 to FY 2011 based on a revised project
         schedule to finish replacing the roof at the Davies Career and Technical Center. The project would be
         programmed as $0.9 million for FY 2009, $1.0 million for FY 2010 and $1.0 million for FY 2011.

         112. Capital – Met East Bay. The House Finance Committee recommends shifting $1.0 million
         each from FY 2009 and FY 2010 to FY 2011 for a new Metropolitan Career and Technical School in
         the East Bay area. A feasibility study was completed during FY 2009. Issues involving site selection
         have caused a delay in the project. Total funding is consistent with the approved capital plan. The
         project would be programmed as $0.1 million for FY 2009 for the feasibility study and $4.0 million in
         FY 2010 and $6.0 million in FY 2011 for construction.

         113. Group Home Beds. Rhode Island General Laws mandate that increases in school aid for
         communities hosting group home beds prior to December 31 of each year shall be paid as part of the
         supplemental budget. The Governor’s revised budget includes $330,000 to fund an additional 22 beds.
         Subsequently, the Department of Children, Youth and Families notified the Department of Elementary
         and Secondary Education that a bed opened in Portsmouth at the end of October. The Governor

         requested an amendment to provide the $15,000 to fund that bed in FY 2009 consistent with current
         law requirements, bringing total group home aid to $9.9 million. The House Finance Committee
         concurs.

         114. Prov. Education/Housing Aid 7 Year Repay. The Governor’s FY 2009 revised budget
         reduces Providence’s education aid by $9.5 million, which is the amount of overpaid school
         construction aid it received on expenditures not eligible for reimbursement. In previous years, when it
         has been determined that a community owes the state for overpayments it received through the school
         construction aid program, the community has been able to repay the state over a number of years.
         Applying the same treatment to Providence would result in a seven-year payback at $1.4 million a
         year. The House Finance Committee recommends amending the statutes to mandate that payback
         formula for all communities where the situation arises, and adds $8.1 million to the Governor’s
         revised budget based upon that formula.

         115. Stimulus - School for Deaf. The School for the Deaf has expenses in its budget that are
         Medicaid reimbursable. The Governor has requested an amendment based on passage of the federal
         stimulus act that increases the rate to 63.9 percent effective October 2008. His amendment recognizes
         an additional $15,641 in Medicaid eligible expenditures for the School for the Deaf and reduces
         general revenues by the same amount. The House Finance Committee concurs.

         116. Stimulus - Fiscal Stabilization Education. The Governor requested an amendment with his FY
         2010 budget to provide $38.3 million from federal stabilization funds for FY 2009 to be distributed to
         school districts, including Central Falls, in the same proportion as state education aid. The budget
         assumes that the Secretary of Education will grant the state a waiver from the maintenance of effort
         requirement that the state maintain support for both elementary and secondary education and public
         higher education at no less than the FY 2006 level for fiscal years 2009, 2010 and 2011. The House
         Finance Committee concurs with the use of $38.3 million from federal stabilization funds and
         recommends a like reduction from general revenues.

         117. Stimulus - Special Education. On February 17, President Obama signed the American
         Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009. In addition to the state fiscal stabilization funds, there was
         additional relief to local schools for special education through the Individuals with Disabilities
         Education Act. The Department of Elementary and Secondary Education has indicated that 50.0
         percent of the total allocation will be released to states by the end of March 2009. The House Finance
         Committee recommends including $19.8 million from stimulus special education funds. Funding will
         be allocated to local districts, the Metropolitan Career and Technical School, charter schools and the
         state schools.

         118. Stimulus - Title I. On February 17, President Obama signed the American Recovery and
         Reinvestment Act of 2009. In addition to the state fiscal stabilization funds, there was additional relief
         to local schools through Title I programs. The Department of Elementary and Secondary Education
         has indicated that 50.0 percent of the total allocation will be released to states by the end of March
         2009. The House Finance Committee recommends including $17.0 million from stimulus Title I
         funds. Funding will be allocated to local districts, the Metropolitan Career and Technical School,
         charter schools and the state schools.

         119. Textbook Reimbursement. The state reimburses districts for the cost of providing textbooks to
         non-public school students in the areas of English/language arts and history/social studies in
         kindergarten through 12th grade. The Governor’s revised budget includes $350,000 to fund this
         program. The Department has indicated that actual expenditures will be $316,677, or $33,323 less



                                                            28

         than the Governor’s revised budget.         The House Finance Committee recommends adjusting
         expenditures accordingly.

         120. Unachievable/Unresolved Pension Savings. The Governor’s revised budget assumes savings of
         $69.3 million to the state and local districts from proposed pension changes contained in Article 32 of
         his revised budget. He reduces general operating aid by the amount of local savings to capture those as
         savings for the state. He proposes setting the minimum retirement age at 59 for all state employees
         and teachers and eliminating the annual cost-of-living adjustments for state employees, teachers, judges
         and state police that retire after April 1, 2009. He subsequently requested an amendment to exclude
         those eligible to retire as of July 1, 2009.

         The state’s actuary provided an actuarial analysis of the provisions in the Governor’s amended pension
         proposal on February 25, 2009. It found that the Budget Office’s estimate of savings was too high.
         Savings on the teacher side would be $45.2 million of which $18.0 million is for the state’s 40 percent
         share and $27.1 million is for the locals’ 60 percent share. This reduces the savings by $26.6 million,
         $11.1 million for the state share and $15.5 million for the local share.

         The House Finance Committee recommends diverting the budgeted savings into a special fund pending
         the adoption of pension changes that would produce significant savings for FY 2009.

                                               Public Higher Education

         121. Capital – CCRI Asset Protection. The House Finance Committee recommends eliminating
         $2.0 million from Rhode Island Capital Plan funds for FY 2009 for asset protection projects for the
         Community College of Rhode Island. This will align the budget with historical spending patterns and
         provide $1.4 million for FY 2009.

         122. Capital - Knight Campus Nursing Program. The House Finance Committee recommends
         eliminating funding for the feasibility study for a new facility at the Knight Campus to support the
         nursing program. The 2006 Assembly appropriated $125,000 from Rhode Island Capital Plan funds to
         conduct a feasibility study for a new facility at the Knight Campus to support the nursing program.
         The Community College has still not begun this project.

         123. Capital – RIC Asset Protection. The House Finance Committee recommends eliminating $0.9
         million from Rhode Island Capital Plan funds for FY 2009 for asset protection projects for Rhode
         Island College. This will align the budget with historical spending patterns and provide $2.0 million
         for FY 2009.

         124. DD Council Federal Funds Adjustment. The Governor requested an amendment to his revised
         FY 2009 budget to add $9,145 from federal funds for the Rhode Island Developmental Disabilities
         Council. This represents available federal funding. The House Finance Committee concurs.

         125. URI Energy Conservation Debt Svc. The Governor requested an amendment to include $0.7
         million from university and college funds to pay debt service for the University of Rhode Island’s
         energy conservation project. The 2006 Assembly approved a resolution for leases not to exceed $18.1
         million at the University to enter into an energy performance contract with an energy service company
         to purchase energy-saving improvements in buildings and infrastructure. The House Finance
         Committee concurs.

         126. Federal Grants. The Governor requested an amendment to his revised FY 2009 budget to add
         $8,179 from federal funds for the Atomic Energy Commission. This represents a balance in the
         Nuclear Energy Research grant that must be expended during FY 2009. The House Finance
         Committee concurs.

         127. National Criminal History Improvement.         The enacted budget did not include any
         expenditures for the National Criminal History Improvement Program of the Bureau of Criminal
         Identification. However, the Governor subsequently requested an amendment to add $8,950 from
         available federal funds for FY 2009.

                                                       Corrections

         128. Capital - Asset Protection.        The Governor’s recommendation for the Department of
         Corrections’ asset protection projects includes $3.6 million for FY 2009. The House Finance
         Committee further reduces funding by $1.3 million to reflect historical and current spending.

         129. Capital - Bernadette Guay Roof Repair. The Governor’s capital budget includes $25,000 for
         FY 2009 and $1.3 million for FY 2010 from Rhode Island Capital Plan funds to repair roof,
         plumbing, and HVAC at the Department of Corrections’ Bernadette Guay facility. It appears no
         funding will be spent in FY 2009. The House Finance Committee eliminates the $25,000 and adds
         $10,000 to FY 2010.

         130. Capital - Maximum General Renovations. The Governor’s capital budget includes $768,400
         for FY 2009 and $84,705 for FY 2010 from Rhode Island Capital Plan funds for electrical upgrades,
         yard segregation, and a new emergency generator at the maximum security facility of the Department
         of Corrections. The Department has secured a contractor for the electrical upgrades, but is still waiting
         for design approval for the segregated yard, which is estimated to be complete in FY 2010. The
         House Finance Committee recommends shifting the $350,000 of uncommitted funding to FY 2010.

         131. Capital - Reintegration Center. The Governor’s capital budget recommendation includes
         $503,500 for FY 2009 and $188,571 for FY 2010 from Rhode Island Capital Plan funds for the
         completion of the reintegration center at the Department of Corrections. The Department is currently
         implementing several recommendations resulting from a security audit, which must be completed
         before the project can begin. The House Finance Committee recommends shifting the $503,500 of
         uncommitted funding from FY 2009 to FY 2011.

         Department indicates this project is not moving as quickly as anticipated, and the available funding
         would not be committed in FY 2009. The House Finance Committee recommends shifting the

         of $1.2 million from Rhode Island Capital Plan funds for Military asset protection projects. This

         available federal funds. The House Finance Committee concurs.

         security initiatives. The Governor’s FY 2009 revised budget increased funding to $3.5 million. The
         Governor subsequently requested an amendment that recommends the increase of $1.0 million more
         shifted to FY 2009 for additional expenses for urban area security. The House Finance Committee
         concurs.

         Police Headquarters in North Scituate. The House Finance Committee recommends shifting $50,000

         process.

         the settlement payment would be paid in FY 2010. The Auditor General has indicated that if the
         settlement payment were to be made in the current year, it would trigger an issue in reporting
         liabilities for FY 2008 causing a larger closing deficit. The House Finance Committee recommends
         using $10.0 million from these funds for public safety activities in FY 2009.

         165. Capital - Big River Management Area Maintenance. The House Finance Committee

                                                     State Aid to Local Governments

                                                                          Introduction

         The budget reported by the House Finance Committee contains total state aid to cities and towns of
         $185.8 million from state general revenues. Funding includes $173.3 million for general aid programs
         and $12.5 million for restricted use programs. Local communities will also receive $10.2 million in
         public service corporation property taxes that the state collects and passes through to the communities.

         The general aid is $59.5 million less than the FY 2009 enacted budget. This reflects the Governor’s
         original proposal to suspend the state appropriation for the General Revenue Sharing payments to
         communities in FY 2009, for which the enacted budget included $55.1 million. The budget also
         includes a $4.2 million reduction for Motor Vehicle Excise Tax reimbursements based on updated
         data.

         The major changes in the aid proposal are discussed on the following pages.

          *FY 2007 reflects recapture of $230,272 overpayment from FY 2006.


         • Payment in Lieu of Taxes. The House Finance Committee recommends $27.6 million to fund the
         Payment in Lieu of Taxes program, $186,558 less than enacted and based upon a review of qualifying
         properties on the Pastore Center. This program reimburses cities and towns for property taxes that
         would have been due on real property owned by nonprofit educational institutions, nonprofit hospitals,
         or any state-owned hospital, veterans’ residential facility or correctional facility, which is exempt from
         taxation by state law.

         • General Revenue Sharing. The House Finance Committee includes legislation to suspend the state
         appropriation for the General Revenue Sharing payments to communities in FY 2009, as was
         originally proposed by the Governor.

         • Motor Vehicles Excise Tax Phase-Out. The House Finance Committee recommends $135.4
         million or $4.2 million less than enacted to fund the Motor Vehicle Excise Tax reimbursements based
         on updated data, which shows that the growth rate from FY 2008 to FY 2009 was actually 0.1 percent.
         The enacted budget assumed a growth rate of 3.2 percent. The 2008 Assembly adopted the


                                                                                    35

         Governor’s proposal to permanently reduce the Motor Vehicle Excise Tax reimbursements to 98.0
         percent of the calculated reimbursement beginning with FY 2008. Communities must give the $6,000
         exemption; however, are effectively reimbursed for $5,880 under this plan to be more in line with
         collection rates.

         • Library Construction Aid. The House Finance Committee recommends $2.6 million or $0.2
         million less than enacted to reflect a general revenue savings for projects that came under budget due
         to lower than anticipated interest rates. The state grants-in-aid for library construction are limited to a
         maximum of 50.0 percent of the total eligible costs as determined by the Office of Library and
         Information Services. The grants are paid on an installment basis for a period up to 20 years.

         • Property Valuation Reimbursement. The House Finance Committee recommends $1.1 million or
         $140,000 less than enacted based on revised estimates from those communities conducting revaluations
         in FY 2009. Current law requires that municipalities update property valuations using statistical
         techniques every third and sixth year after a full revaluation. The statute also requires that the state
         reimburse municipalities for 100.0 percent of the costs for the first update at a rate not to exceed $20
         per parcel.

         • Public Service Corporation Tax. The Budget assumes the state will collect $10.2 million of
         property taxes from public service corporations on behalf of municipalities and pass that back to them.
         The House Finance Committee proposes legislation to freeze the tax rate applied to the tangible
         personal property of public service corporations at the FY 2008 rates. Freezing the rate at the FY
         2008 level is estimated to save the municipalities a total of $645,000. Annual tax collections have
         dropped from $16.6 million in FY 2004 to $10.2 million in the current fiscal year.

         The following table illustrates the total enacted amount for general state aid and as recommended by
         the House Finance Committee.

                                                         Education Aid

         The budget reported by the House Finance Committee includes a total of $674.1 million for FY 2009
         revised education aid from general revenues and federal funds for distribution to districts including
         Central Falls. Compared to the enacted, the revised budget adds $0.3 million for group homes,
         suspends professional development investment funds for FY 2009; reduces education aid by the
         amount of retirement contribution savings proposed in the Governor’s revised budget; reduces
         Providence’s aid by a portion of overpaid school construction aid; and reduces general operating aid by
         the estimated amount of Permanent School Fund distributions from December 1, 2008 through June
         30, 2009. The revised budget also maximizes use of $38.3 million from federal fiscal stabilization
         funds in lieu of a like amount from general revenues. The recommendation also includes $19.4
         million from special education funding and $16.2 million from Title I funding also available from the
         American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009. The specific savings are described below.

                                                 General Revenue Changes

         • Group Home Aid. The budget includes an additional $345,000 for aid to communities hosting
         group homes. This includes $195,000 for 13 beds that opened as of December 31, 2008 and $150,000
         for ten beds that should have been included in the FY 2009 enacted budget but were not reported by
         the Department of Children, Youth and Families.

         • Permanent School Fund. The 2008 Assembly enacted legislation that became law on May 6,
         2008 to allow Twin River and Newport Grand to operate video lottery games on a twenty-four hour
         basis on weekends and federally recognized holidays. The state share of any additional revenue from
         the additional hours, up to $14.1 million by June 30, 2009, will be allocated to the Permanent School
         Fund. Those funds are to be distributed as aid to local education authorities in the same proportion as
         the general revenue aid distribution. Districts received $2.4 million from July through December.
         Because those funds are transferred directly to the districts, they are not shown in the above table. The
         budget assumes that districts will receive $3.5 million from the fund that will be distributed for
         December 2008 through June 2009, and reduces general operating aid by that amount.

         • Providence Housing Aid. A review by the Rhode Island Health and Educational Building
         Corporation during FY 2008 revealed the state had been reimbursing Providence on capitalized interest
         costs for several years in conflict with Board of Regents rules and regulations for the school
         construction program. The Governor’s FY 2009 revised budget reduces Providence’s education aid by
         $9.5 million, which is the total amount of overpaid school construction aid. In previous years, when it
         has been determined that a community owes the state for overpayments it received through the school
         construction aid program the community has been able to repay the state over a number of years.

         The budget includes legislation to establish a repayment schedule for communities that the
         Commissioner of Elementary and Secondary Education has determined have been overpaid school
         housing aid. The repayment schedule is based on the total amount of overpayment in relation to the
         amount of local revenues reported by the school district. Applying this treatment to Providence would
         result in a seven-year payback at $1.4 million a year. The House Finance Committee recommends
         reducing Providence’s aid by $1.4 million for FY 2009.

         • Professional Development. The Professional Development Investment Fund provides resources
         for continued skill development for Rhode Island’s teachers and staff. The expenditure of these funds
         is determined by a committee at each school consisting of the school principal, two teachers selected
         by the teaching staff of the school and two parents of students attending the school. Plans are
         submitted to the Department, and the Commissioner must approve them before funding is released.
         Consistent with the Governor’s recommendation, the budget eliminates the full value of this program
         and includes legislation to suspend the program for FY 2009. The budget assumes savings of $5.8
         million.

         • Local Pension Savings. The Governor proposes changes to the Retirement System as part of his
         revised budget. He proposes setting the minimum retirement age at 59 for all state employees and
         teachers and eliminating the annual cost-of-living adjustments for state employees, teachers, judges and
         state police that retire after April 1, 2009. Assumed savings to local school districts is $40.7 million,
         and the budget reduces general operating aid by that amount to capture those as savings for the state as
         well.

         The House Finance Committee includes legislation authorizing the diversion of scheduled contributions
         for the retirement system into a special fund pending the adoption of pension changes that would
         produce significant savings for FY 2009. For local school districts, the state would contribute their
         remaining employer contributions into the special fund from the $40.7 million withheld from planned
         state aid payments. Once changes are adopted, the correct contributions will be transferred to the
         retirement fund, and the remaining savings would revert to the state. The state would also restore to
         local districts any amount withheld from their school aid in excess of the actual savings produced.

         • Stimulus Fiscal Stabilization Offset. The budget reduces general revenues by $38.3 million,
         which are offset with a like amount of federal funds available through the American Recovery and
         Reinvestment Act of 2009.


                                                 Federal Fund Changes

         • Stimulus Fiscal Stabilization. On February 17, President Obama signed the American Recovery
         and Reinvestment Act of 2009. The budget assumes the state will receive a waiver from the
         requirement that the state maintain support for both elementary and secondary education and public
         higher education at no less than the FY 2006 level for fiscal years 2009, 2010 and 2011 in order to be


                                                            39

         eligible for stabilization funds. The FY 2009 budget uses $38.3 million of the total $134.9 million
         available for education over that three-year period. The budget uses these funds to offset a like
         reduction from general revenues.

         • Stimulus Special Ed. In addition to the fiscal stabilization funds, the Act provides additional relief
         to local schools for special education through the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act. The
         Department of Elementary and Secondary Education has indicated that 50.0 percent of the total
         allocation will be released to states by the end of March 2009. The budget includes $19.4 million
         from stimulus special education funds to local districts, which reflects the available funds.

         • Stimulus Title I. In addition to the fiscal stabilization funds, the Act provides additional relief to
         local schools through Title I programs. The Department of Elementary and Secondary Education has
         indicated that 50.0 percent of the total allocation will be released to states by the end of March 2009.
         The House Finance Committee recommends including $16.2 million from stimulus Title I funds to
         local districts, which reflects the available funds.

                                                   Distribution Tables

         The following tables show the proposed distribution of revised FY 2009 aid by community.

         • FY 2009 Revised Education Aid Summary. The first table includes the changes to education aid
         contained in the budget, excluding savings from pension changes.

         • General Revenue Changes to Enacted.            The second table includes only the general revenue
         adjustments excluding pension savings.

         • Article 14 Distributions. The third table shows the general revenue adjustments and estimated
         savings to local districts from pension changes. Assumed savings to local school districts is $40.7
         million and the budget reduces general operating aid by that amount to capture those as savings for the
         state as well. This table also shows the use of stimulus fiscal stabilization funds and offsetting general
         revenue reduction. This table omits the stimulus special education and title I funding as those
         allocations are distributed through the Department, not specified in Article 14.

                                                       Article 1

         • Section 1. FY 2009 Appropriations. This section of Article 1 contains the revised appropriations
         for FY 2009.

         • Section 2. Line Item Appropriations. This section establishes that each line of Section 1 in
         Article 1 constitutes an appropriation.

         • Section 3. Dual Party Phone Relay Fund. This section of Article 1 mandates that the Public
         Utilities Commission transfer $183,246 from the Dual Party Phone Relay escrow account to the
         general fund by June 30, 2009. It appears that the ongoing collection of the monthly $0.09 relay
         service fee is sufficient to fund this service. The 2005 Assembly authorized a similar transfer during a
         time in which there was a surplus of funds.

         • Section 4. Workers’ Compensation Escrow. Article 1, Section 4 transfers $0.7 million from the
         Workers’ Compensation Escrow Fund to state general revenues by June 30, 2009. These revenues are
         included in the FY 2009 revised budget.

         • Section 5. Internal Service Funds. Section 5 of Article 1 authorizes the establishment of limited
         and specific internal service accounts to implement the cases in which state agencies provide services
         to other state agencies, institutions and other governmental units on a cost reimbursement basis. This
         section maintains the accounts authorized by the 2008 Assembly; however, changes the amount to
         reflect updated expenditure projections.

         • Section 6. Full-Time Equivalent Positions. This section of Article 1 limits the maximum
         number of full-time equivalent positions authorized for the departments and agencies during any
         payroll period in FY 2009. It also provides that no contracted employee can be hired nor may any
         agency contract for services replacing work done by state employees without public hearings and
         recommendations by the Budget Office and State Director of Personnel and determination of need by
         the Director of Administration. In addition, state employees whose funding is from non-state funds
         that are time limited shall receive appointments limited to the availability of the non-state funding
         source. The section also includes the usual provision for the Governor or designee, Speaker of the
         House or designee, and President of the Senate or designee to jointly adjust the authorization.

         • Section 7. Effective Date. This section of Article 1 establishes that the article is effective upon
         passage.


                                           Article 2. Interfund Transfers

         Article 2 amends current language to mandate that interfund transfers must be made whole by
         September 30 of the following fiscal year and mandates that no other interfund transfer can be made
         from the same fund until at least six months after the fund was made whole from the previous transfer.

                                            2009-H 5019 Substitute A


                         Article 3. Clean Water Finance Agency Stimulus Compliance

         Article 3 would allow the Clean Water Finance Agency to provide financial assistance for both clean
         water and drinking water infrastructure projects in the form of principal forgiveness and negative
         interest loans. The language contained in the article would allow the Agency to issue loans that would
         be in compliance with the provisions of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009.


                                         Article 4. Retiree Health Benefits

         Article 4 would delay the state’s movement to an actuarial based system for payment of retiree heath
         benefits, also known as other post employment benefits “OPEB” for two years, until FY 2011. The
         article would also alter the valuation schedule from annually to one in compliance with generally
         accepted accounting principals. The 2008 Assembly enacted legislation to change its provision of these
         benefits from a pay-as-you-go system along with significant benefit reductions to future retirees
         effective October 1, 2008. The revised actuarial estimates now updated for the recent surge of
         retirements suggest actuarial funding would require a $14.5 million general revenue supplemental
         appropriation. The revised budget assumes this article will save $8.3 million from general revenues
         and includes only costs to fund the new pay-go rate, an additional $6.2 million.


                                   Article 5. Unemployment Insurance Benefits

         Article 5 suspends the one-week waiting period for the receipt of unemployment insurance benefits
         from the date of passage through June 30, 2009. Suspending the waiting period allows claimants to
         receive compensation one week earlier, but does not change the value or duration of a benefits claim.


                                    Article 6. Public Service Corporation Rate

         This article freezes the tax rate applied to the tangible personal property of public service corporations
         at the FY 2008 rates. Freezing the rate at the FY 2008 level is estimated to save the municipalities a
         total of $645,000. Annual tax collections have dropped from $16.6 million in FY 2004 to $10.2
         million in the current fiscal year. In FY 2008, the tax rate was $15.56 per thousand dollars of value
         and it is estimated to be $14.47 per thousand dollars of value in FY 2009. The article would take
         effect on March 31, 2009.


                                                  Article 7. State Aid

         This article suspends the state appropriation for the General Revenue Sharing payments to communities
         in FY 2009, for which the enacted budget included $55.1 million. The state generally makes the
         formula payment to communities in March of each year, and the supplemental payment from video
         lottery revenues at the end of June.

                                           2009-H 5019 Substitute A


                                            Article 8. Personnel Reform

         Article 8 requires all collective bargaining agreements in which the state is a party to have prior
         approval of the Governor and the Director of the Department of Administration. This would include
         any agreements made with the Board of Governors, Board of Regents, and Public Telecommunications
         Authority Board. There are no savings assumed in the budget from the passage of this article.


                                        Article 9. Energy Revolving Fund

         This article repeals the Energy Revolving Loan Fund and provides enabling legislation to transfer any
         remaining balances as of June 30, 2008 to the general fund. The FY 2008 budget already includes the
         transfer of $1.3 million from the Energy Revolving Loan Fund. In the event the transfer is not
         allowed, the FY 2008 closing deficit would increase by $1.3 million.


                                                Article 10. Revenues

         Sections 1 through 4. Division of Motor Vehicles. Sections 1 through 4 of Article 10 double the
         title fee from $25 to $50, including transfers and increase the fee for restoration of revoked title or
         registration from $50 to $250; increase the fee for restoration of a revoked or suspended license from
         $75 to $150; and increase the fee for the restoration of revoked or suspended license for individuals
         driving under the influence of alcohol from $75 to $350. The budget assumes $2.1 million in revenues
         from these fee increases.

         Sections 5 through 7. Cigarette Tax. Sections 5 through 7 of Article 10 increase the cigarette tax by
         $1.00 per pack to $3.46 effective April 10, 2009. The minimum markup provision and the
         distributors’ stamping discount are maintained. The budget includes $13.1 million in additional
         revenue in FY 2009, and the estimated yield for FY 2010 is $30.2 million.

         Section 8. Other Tobacco Products. Section 8 increases the tax on smokeless tobacco, snuff, and
         pipe tobacco from 40 percent of wholesale price to 80 percent which would result in $1.0 million in
         additional revenue annually and $333,333 for FY 2009.

         Section 9. Health Insurers Tax. Section 9 of Article 10 increases the gross premiums tax for
         nonprofit hospital service corporations and health management organizations and nonprofit dental
         corporations from 1.75 percent to 2.0 percent making all insurers taxed at the same rate effective
         January 1, 2009. It also removes the gross premiums tax exemption from Medicaid managed care
         providers. The 2006 Assembly removed the exemption from nonprofit hospital service corporations
         and health management organizations effective January 1, 2008 and applied a 1.1 percent rate. The
         2008 Assembly increased the rate to 1.75 percent and added nonprofit dental service corporations to
         the definition of insurers that are subject to the gross premiums tax effective January 1, 2009. The
         budget includes $12.8 million in additional revenues.

         Sections 10 and 11. Underground Storage Tank Fund. Sections 10 and 11 of Article 10 allow
         transfers of up to $2,237,500 of gas tax deposits into the Underground Storage Tank Fund to be

         directed to the Rhode Island Public Transit Authority, effective January 1, 2009 and permanently
         dedicates one-half of the $0.01 per gallon surcharge on motor fuel sold to owners and operators of
         underground storage tanks to the Authority beginning in FY 2010. In the past, deposits into the fund
         have been diverted in the amount of $2.0 million each for FY 2006 and FY 2008.

         Sections 12 through 14. Local Pothole Fund. Sections 12 through 14 of Article 10 establish the
         Rhode Island Local Pothole Fund, which would be funded through a two cent ($0.02) per gallon
         increase in the motor fuel tax, with the annual proceeds being split between municipalities and the
         Rhode Island Public Transit Authority through September 30 of 2010. Proceeds from the fund would
         be used by the municipalities for road and street maintenance and repair, 50.0 percent would be
         distributed based on each city or town’s share of population, and 50.0 percent would be distributed by
         its share of roads that are not included in the federal aid system. Beginning October 1, 2010, all
         proceeds from the two cents would be distributed to the Authority, which would permanently set its
         gasoline tax allotment at nine and one quarter cents ($0.0925).

         Section 15. Personal Income Tax. The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 allows
         for an itemized deduction for state and local sales taxes paid on new vehicles under 8,500 pounds and
         up to $49,500 in value for vehicles purchased between February 17 and December 31, 2009. It also
         suspends federal income tax obligations on the first $2,400 in unemployment benefits received. The
         Governor’s FY 2010 budget includes a revenue loss of $6.8 million from allowing the deductions.
         This article amends the personal income tax statutes to disallow the deductions. Passage of this section
         would result in additional revenues of $6.8 million in FY 2010.

         Sections 16 and 17. Court Remediation Fee. Sections 16 and 17 of Article 10 increase the entry fee
         for plaintiffs involved in small claims mediation from $30.00 to $50.00 effective upon passage. Of the
         increase, $10.00 would go to general revenues and the other $10.00 would go to the small claims
         mediation fund, which would be converted into a restricted receipt account. The budget assumes
         $78,929 in additional revenues for FY 2009.


                                             Article 11. Pension Reform

         This Article authorizes the diversion of scheduled contributions for the retirement system into a special
         fund pending the adoption of pension changes that would produce significant savings for FY 2009.
         For local school districts, the state would contribute their remaining employer contributions into the
         special fund from the $40.7 million withheld from planned state aid payments. Once changes are
         adopted, the correct contributions will be transferred to the retirement fund, and the remaining savings
         would revert to the state. The state would also restore to local districts any amount withheld from
         their school aid in excess of the actual savings produced. The appropriations contained in Article 1
         include the full $92.5 million from general revenues needed to fund the required contributions under
         current law.

         The Article also excludes one-time salary reductions, such as in the case of furloughs or shutdown
         days, from the calculation of retiring employees’ highest three consecutive years of compensation in
         determining retirement benefits for participants in the Municipal Employees’ Retirement System. It
         extends the requirement that employees pay the retirement contribution they would have paid, were it

         not for the salary reduction. Current law is limited to retirements prior to June 30, 1995; this change
         is consistent with the revision adopted by the 2008 Assembly for state employees.


                  Article 12. Economic Development and Industrial Facilities Corporations

         The 2006 Assembly enacted legislation to require its approval for project status, which provides for
         sales tax exemptions for Economic Development Corporation and Rhode Island Industrial Facilities
         Corporation projects. This article returns the authority to grant “project status” to the corporations
         with strict provisions and removes the requirement for Assembly approval. The article requires that
         the sales tax exemption be reimbursed rather than an up-front purchase exemption.


                                          Article 13. Pupil Transportation

         Article 13 mandates the use of a statewide transportation system, upon implementation, for special
         needs students and the eventual implementation of the transportation system for all students. The
         legislation permits any school committee that transports its students primarily using district-owned
         buses and district employees to continue to do so. The article also requires the Department of
         Elementary and Secondary Education to manage and oversee the system in collaboration with the
         Office of Statewide Planning and the Rhode Island Public Transit Authority; however, it allows the
         management and oversight function to be delegated to an outside consultant through a competitive
         process if deemed more efficient. The budget includes $50,000 from general revenues for
         implementation work.


                                              Article 14. Education Aid

         Article 14 contains legislation for implementation of the revised FY 2009 education aid proposal. It
         suspends professional development investment funds for FY 2009; reduces education aid by the
         amount of retirement contribution savings originally proposed in the Governor’s revised budget;
         reduces Providence’s aid by a portion of overpaid school construction aid; and reduces general
         operating aid by the estimated amount of Permanent School Fund distributions from December 1, 2008
         through June 30, 2009. It also provides $38.3 million from federal fiscal stabilization funds offset by
         a like reduction from general revenues.

         Article 14 makes changes to the education aid statutes to establish a repayment schedule for
         communities that have been overpaid school housing aid. The repayment schedule is based on the total
         amount of overpayment in relation to the amount of local revenues reported by the school district.


                                            Article 15. Nursing Facilities

         Article 15 defers the start date of the nursing facilities cost-of-living adjustment from April 1, 2009 to
         July 1, 2009. This article also includes a five percent reduction in daily rates paid to nursing homes in

         FY 2009. The budget assumes savings in nursing home expenditures of $9.5 million, including $3.7
         million from general revenues.


                                   Article 16. Out-of-State Hospital Payments

         Article 16 changes the Medicaid payment methodologies to out-of-state hospital providers from defined
         percentages in statute to rates determined by the Department in accordance with federal regulations.
         Presently, out-of-state providers are reimbursed percentages of their charges for services as follows:
         50.0 percent for inpatient; 53.0 percent for outpatient; and 61.0 percent for transplants. This article
         takes effect upon passage but will apply to reimbursements on or after March 1, 2009.

         The revised budget assumes savings of $366,695 from all sources including $142,773 from general
         revenues based upon the Department reimbursing out-of-state hospitals at the following percentages for
         their services: 45.0 percent inpatient; 47.7 percent for outpatient; and 54.9 percent for transplants.


                                           Article 17. Hospital Payments

         This article eliminates three payments the state is to make to community hospitals in FY 2009. The
         first two are separate inpatient and outpatient upper limit payments intended to provide a rate to the
         community hospitals for services that is equal to what Medicare would pay for the same inpatient and
         outpatient services. The third payment is for state funded reimbursements to certain community
         hospitals for additional uncompensated care costs. The three payments were included in Section 2 of
         Article 19 of 2008-H 7390 Substitute A, as amended. The revised budget assumes savings of $31.4
         million including $14.3 million from general revenues.


                                             Article 18. Effective Date

         Article 18 provides that the act shall take effect upon passage, except where a provision within the
         article specifies a retroactive or prospective effective date.
