Senate Bill 7 (S-1) CR-1*

Sponsor: Senator Sarah E. Anthony

Committee: Appropriations

 

Date Completed: 1-26-23

The bill would appropriate a net total of $146.3 million ($134.9 million Federal, $300,000 local, $11.1 million restricted, and $0 General Fund/General Purpose (GF/GP)) for fiscal year (FY) 2021-22. Further, for FY 2022-23, the bill would appropriate a total of $946.2 million ($240.0 million Federal, $706.2 million GF/GP). These funds would be appropriated across several State departments; amounts for each affected department are detailed in Tables 1 through 3. Note that the final column in Table 1 is the total amount of the positive and negative 'net-to-zero' appropriation adjustments for each affected department.

 

Appropriations for FY 2021-22 include several positive and negative amounts that net to zero. These 'net-to-zero' items would facilitate the close of books for FY 2021-22 by reducing line items in which actual expenditures were less than the appropriated amounts and transferring those appropriations to line items in which expenditures are projected to exceed appropriations. The majority of these items are in entitlement-type programs such as Medicaid, or in programs with highly variable staffing costs, such as the items for the Department of Corrections. The FY 2021-22 items in the bill effectively would make the year-end budgetary adjustments requested by the State Budget Office in Supplemental Requests 2022-7, 2022-8, and 2022-9, which were submitted to the Senate and House Appropriations Committees on September 7th, 2022, November 4th, 2022, and November 30th, 2022, respectively.

 

The bill contains several FY 2021-22 items that would be net increases that do not net to zero. The largest of these items is $120.0 million of Federal funds for the Food Assistance Program in the Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS). A list of the remaining items that do not net to zero is available in Table 2.

 

Finally, the bill contains several items for FY 2022-23, including $200.0 million for an Upper Peninsula economic development project, $150.0 million for affordable housing and housing gap financing, $150.0 million for a deposit into the Strategic Outreach and Attraction Reserve (SOAR) Fund, $100.0 million for community revitalization and placemaking (RAP) grants, $75.0 million for blight elimination, $75.0 million for small business smart zones, and several other items. The bill would appropriate $240.0 million of the remaining roughly $700.0 million in unappropriated Federal American Rescue Plan (ARP) Act funds, with the remaining $706.2 million in spending supported by GF/GP funds. Table 3 itemizes the supplemental items in S.B. 7 for FY 2022-23.
