SB40-SSA1-SA1,2,246 13.101 (6) (a) As an emergency measure necessitated by decreased state
7revenues and to prevent the necessity for a state tax on general property, the
8committee may reduce any appropriation made to any board, commission,
9department, or the University of Wisconsin System, or to any other state agency or
10activity, by such amount as it deems feasible, not exceeding 25% of the
11appropriations, except appropriations made by ss. 20.255 (2) (ac), (bc), (bh), (cg), and

16shall for the purposes of this section be regarded as equivalent to the amounts
17expended under such appropriations in the prior fiscal year which ended June 30.
18All functions of said state agencies shall be continued in an efficient manner, but
19because of the uncertainties of the existing situation no public funds should be
20expended or obligations incurred unless there shall be adequate revenues to meet the
21expenditures therefor. For such reason the committee may make reductions of such
22appropriations as in its judgment will secure sound financial operations of the
23administration for said state agencies and at the same time interfere least with their
24services and activities.".
