The Honorable, The Legislature:
In accordance with Section 51.06 (8), Wisconsin Statutes, enclosed is a copy of the report on people relocated and diverted from nursing homes, intermediate care facilities for the mentally retarded (ICFs-MR), and State Centers for the Developmentally Disabled in state fiscal year (SFY) 2010. This report provides information related to four programs, the ICF-MR Restructuring Initiative, Relocations from the State Centers for the Developmentally Disabled, the Community Relocation Initiative, and the Nursing Home Diversion Initiative.

The Honorable, The Legislature:
This report is transmitted as required by s. 20.002(11)(f), Wisconsin Statutes, (for distribution to the appropriate standing committees under s. 13.172(3), Wisconsin Statutes) and confirms that the Department of Administration has found it necessary to exercise the "temporary reallocation of balances" authority provided by this section in order to meet payment responsibilities and cover resulting negative cash balances during the month of November 2010.
On November 1, 2010, the Worker's Compensation Fund cash balance closed at a negative $1.6 million (its intra-month low). This negative balance continued through November 16, 2010, when the fund's cash balance closed at a positive $45 thousand. The negative balance was due to the difference in the timing of revenues and expenditures.
On November 1, 2010, the Mediation Fund cash balance closed at a negative $35 thousand. This negative balance continued through November 19, 2010, when the fund's cash balance closed at a positive $300 thousand. The Mediation Fund cash balance reached its intra-month low of a negative $52 thousand on November 18, 2010. The negative balance was due to the difference in the timing of revenues and expenditures.
On November 22, 2010, the Police and Fire Protection Fund cash balance closed at a negative $47.6 million (its intra-month low). This negative balance continued through November 30, 2010, when the fund's cash balance closed at a negative $43.3 million. The negative balance was due to the difference in the timing of revenues and expenditures.
The Worker's Compensation Fund, Mediation Fund, and Police and Fire Protection Fund shortfalls were not in excess of the statutory interfund borrowing limitations and did not exceed the balances of the funds available for interfund borrowing.
S30 The distribution of interest earnings to investment pool participants is based on the average daily balance in the pool and each fund's share. Therefore, the monthly calculation by the State Controller's Office will automatically reflect the use of these temporary reallocations of balance authority, and as a result, the funds requiring the use of the authority will effectively bear the interest cost.
Sincerely,
daniel schooff
Secretary

The Honorable, The Legislature:
This biennial report, which is required under s. 13.94(1)(j), Wis. Stats., summarizes the Legislative Audit Bureau's statutory responsibilities and highlights significant accomplishments from January 1, 2009, through December 31, 2010.
S34 During that biennium, we produced more than 70 independent audits, evaluations, reviews, opinions, and certifications. Our work helps to assure the Legislature and the public that financial transactions and management decisions are made effectively, efficiently, and in compliance with the law and that the policies and practices of state agencies are consistent with legislative intent. Our reports frequently include recommendations that improve government programs and services, maximize federal reimbursements, and ensure public funds are wisely spent and appropriately accounted for.
We are proud to deliver accurate and useful information that enhances accountability and assists the Legislature in its oversight of executive branch agencies. We look forward to serving the Legislature, the Governor, and the people of Wisconsin in the coming years.
Sincerely,

Department of Justice
January 6, 2011
The Honorable, The Legislature:
Section 165.90 of the Wisconsin Statutes requires the Department of Justice to report on the performance of cooperative county-tribal law enforcement programs receiving aid under this section. This letter constitutes our report.
This marks the twenty-third year that the Department has awarded grants for cooperative county-tribal law enforcement programs. The statutes require counties and tribes to develop joint program plans. The Department requires plans to include resolutions of support for the plan adopted by county boards and tribal governing bodies, to signify cooperation and mutual commitment.
This program pays for a variety of law enforcement services to Native American communities across Wisconsin. Grants have been used for the costs of personnel, patrol, investigation, crime prevention, K-9 units, information technology, law enforcement training, alternatives to drug abuse and gang involvement, diversity training, cultural awareness education, and emergency/rescue equipment. An increasing number of grants are awarded to programs that include tribal policy departments, generally helping to pay for tribal liaison personnel and patrol services provided to Native American reservations and communities.
The amount appropriated for this program in State Fiscal Year 2011 was $701,300. Grant funds come from tribal gaming receipts as appropriated in the biennial budget. For Calendar Year 2011, the Department issued 19 awards totaling $701,300. These awards were in the following amounts:
CY2010

Ashland Bad River

Barron St. Croix
