85.62 Transportation fund balance and appropriation reductions.

85.62(1)

(1) During any fiscal biennium, if at any time the department determines that, at the close of the fiscal biennium, net appropriations and fund reserves from the transportation fund will exceed estimated transportation fund revenues by more than $30,000,000, the department shall develop a plan to eliminate, by the close of the fiscal biennium, this projected deficit by reducing state funds appropriations under s. 20.395, other than those for debt service and sum sufficient appropriations, from the transportation fund. This plan may not include the reduction of any state funds appropriation if the reduction would violate a condition imposed by the federal government on the receipt of federal funds or if the reduction would violate the federal or state constitution. The secretary shall submit this plan to the joint committee on finance.

85.62(2)

(2) If the cochairpersons of the joint committee on finance do not notify the secretary within 14 working days after the date on which the secretary submits the plan under sub. (1) that the committee has scheduled a meeting for the purpose of reviewing the plan, the secretary shall implement the plan. If, within 14 working days after the date on which the secretary submits the plan, the cochairpersons of the joint committee on finance notify the secretary that the committee has scheduled a meeting for the purpose of reviewing the plan, the secretary may implement the plan only as approved, or modified and approved, by the committee.

85.62(3)

(3) Notwithstanding ss. 13.101 (6) and 20.001 (3) (c), if a plan is implemented as provided under sub. (2), the appropriation accounts shall be reduced as specified in the plan implemented under sub. (2).
