The Honorable, The Senate:
Due to a clerical error, my name appears as a cosponsor of Senate Bill 85, relating to mergers, consolidations and acquisitions of electric or gas public utilities, formation of electric or gas public utility holding companies, and electric or gas public utility affiliates in a holding company system.
I ask that my name be removed from the list of cosponsors of this bill. Thank you for your attention to this matter.
Sincerely,
Robert W. Wirch
State Senator

Department of Administration
February 19, 1997
The Honorable, The Legislature:
This report is transmitted as required by sec.20.002(11)(f) of the Wisconsin Statutes, (for distribution to the appropriate standing committees under sec. 13.172(3) Stats.), and confirms that the Department of Administration has found it necessary to exercise the "temporary reallocation of balance" authority provided by this section in order to meet payment responsibilities and cover resulting negative balances during the month of January, 1997.
On January 23, 1997 the Wisconsin Health Education Loan Repayment Fund balance was -$2 thousand. This shortfall increased to -$3 thousand on January 29, 1997 and continued through the end of the month. This shortfall was due to the timing of revenues.
On January 6, 1997 the Wisconsin Petroleum Inspection Fund balance was -$602 thousand. This shortfall continued until January 21, 1997 when the balance reached $7.49 million. This shortfall was due to the timing of revenues.
The Wisconsin Health Education Loan Repayment and Wisconsin Petroleum Inspection Fund shortfalls were not in excess of the $400 million ceiling and did not exceed the balances of the Funds available for interfund borrowing.
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.
Sincerely,
mark bugher
Secretary
Referred to the joint committee on Finance
