The Government Accountability Board (G.A.B.) requests the Joint Committee on Finance (JCF) approve a request to transfer $404,500 in GPR funds from the Committee's supplemental appropriation [s.20.865( 4)(a)] to the agency's GPR general operations appropriation [§20.511 (1)(a)] in order to enable the agency to fund its current expenditures and encumbrances to date used to process the 2012 Recall Petitions for Statewide and Senate District offices (Governor, Lieutenant Governor and four State Senators). Board staff estimates the total cost of administratively processing the Recall Petitions to be approximately $975,000. As Director and General Counsel of the Government Accountability Board, I will represent the agency at the quarterly meeting of the Joint Committee on Finance.
