The continuing appropriation provided under s. 20.866 (2) (ur), 1969 Stats., was limited by its terms to $40,300,000. Section 20.002 (1) does not provide additional bonding authority in the next biennium prior to the new budget to satisfy the requirements of s. 18.04 (2).

, the legislative reference bureau shall renumber such laws accordingly.

, by the paragraph letters assigned as follows:
Appropriations from general purpose revenues shall be assigned paragraph letters (a) to (fz).
To the extent feasible, appropriations from program revenues shall be assigned paragraph letters (g) to (jz) and (L) to (pz).
To the extent feasible, appropriations from program revenue — service shall be assigned paragraph letters (k) to (kz).
Appropriations from segregated revenues shall be assigned paragraph letters (q) to (zz).
To the extent feasible, federal program revenues shall be assigned paragraph letters (m) to (pz).
To the extent feasible, federal segregated revenues shall be assigned paragraph letters (x) to (zz).
All appropriations under ss. 20.370
shall be identified by 2 letters, the first letter indicating a subprogram and the 2nd letter indicating the source of funds, as defined in s. 20.001

(4) Required general fund balance.
No bill directly or indirectly affecting general purpose revenues as defined in s. 20.001 (2) (a)
may be enacted by the legislature if the bill would cause the estimated general fund balance on June 30 of any fiscal year specified in this subsection, as projected under s. 20.005 (1)
, to be an amount equal to less than the following amounts for that fiscal year or percentage of the total general purpose revenue appropriations for that fiscal year plus any amount from general purpose revenue designated as “Compensation Reserves" for that fiscal year in the summary under s. 20.005 (1)
For fiscal year 2017-18 and each fiscal year thereafter, an amount equal to the prior fiscal year's required statutory balance plus $5,000,000, but not to exceed 2 percent.
(4m) Required general fund structural balance.
No bill may be adopted by the legislature if the bill would cause in the 2nd year of any fiscal biennium the amount of moneys designated as “Total Expenditures" in the summary under s. 20.005 (1)
for that fiscal year, less any amounts transferred to the budget stabilization fund in that fiscal year, to exceed the sum of the amount of moneys designated as “Taxes" and “Departmental Revenues" in the summary under s. 20.005 (1)
for that fiscal year.
The legislature may not enact any bill directly or indirectly affecting the lottery fund if the bill would cause the estimated lottery fund balance on June 30 of any fiscal year, as projected under s. 20.005 (1)
, to be less than 2 percent of the estimated gross lottery revenues, as defined in s. 25.75 (1) (b)
, for that fiscal year, as projected under s. 20.005 (1)
Beginning with the summary under s. 20.005 (1)
that is included in the 1991-93 biennial budget bill, the summary under s. 20.005 (1)
shall separately list estimated lottery fund balances and estimated gross lottery revenues, as defined in s. 25.75 (1) (b)
Revising schedule and summaries. 20.004(1)
If the legislative reference bureau, in consultation with the cochairpersons of the joint committee on finance, determines that any bill introduced into either house of the legislature is a major fiscal bill because it would have a significant effect upon state revenues or expenditures, the legislative reference bureau shall have printed, as an appendix to the bill, a revised s. 20.005 (1)
, incorporating the changes in the general fund summary and in the summary of appropriations that would occur as a result of enactment of the bill. The department of administration shall provide the legislative reference bureau with the revised summaries.
Immediately following the final adjournment of the legislature, or at convenient intervals prior thereto, the department of administration shall amend the schedule and summaries set forth in s. 20.005
to include all fiscal acts of the legislature, and submit the composite amended schedule and summaries to the joint committee on finance for approval. When approved, the department of administration shall then submit the schedule and summaries to the legislative reference bureau, which shall print the revised schedules and summaries of all state funds in the ensuing edition of the biennial Wisconsin statutes printed under s. 35.18 (1) (a)
as part of s. 20.005
and in lieu of the schedules and summaries printed in the preceding edition of the biennial Wisconsin statutes. If any conflict exists between ss. 20.115
and s. 20.005
, ss. 20.115
shall control and s. 20.005
shall be changed to correspond with ss. 20.115
. All appropriations are to be rounded to the nearest $100 and if any appropriation is made which is not so rounded the department of administration, when preparing the composite amended schedule and summaries, shall show the appropriation increased to the next $100.
