To the Honorable, the Legislature:
I am submitting the quarterly report of the Wisconsin Lottery for the quarter ending December 31, 2009. As required by s. 565.37 (3), Wis. Stats., the attached materials contain unaudited Wisconsin Lottery year-to-date Revenue and Expenditure information.
Sales for the second quarter were down slightly, $112.0 million versus $112.9 million for the same period last year. However, net operating income for the quarter was up $32.9 million versus $31.7 million for the same period last year. The increase in net operating income is primarily due to cost savings. Year to date sales are up $6.2 million, or 2.7%.
The information reported here is a summary and is not intended to be a complete financial accounting of Wisconsin Lottery operations.
If you have any questions or comments regarding this report, please feel free to contact me at (608) 266-6466.
Sincerely,
Roger M. Ervin
Secretary

To 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 December 2009.
On December 1, 2009, the Injured Patients and Families Compensation Fund cash balance closed at a negative $19.7 million (its intra-month low). This negative balance continued through December 31, 2009, when the fund's cash balance closed at a negative $13.8 million. The negative balance was due to the transfer of $200 million to the Medical Assistance Trust Fund per 2007 Wisconsin Act 20, and the pending liquidation of fund securities necessary to offset this shortfall.
On December 1, 2009, the Utility Public Benefits Fund cash balance closed at a negative $13.0 million. This negative balance continued through December 31, 2009, when the fund's cash balance closed at a negative $17.9 million (its intra-month low). The negative balance was due to the difference in the timing of revenues and expenditures.
On December 1, 2009, the Permanent Endowment Fund cash balance closed at a negative $2.0 million. This negative balance continued through December 31, 2009, when the fund's cash balance closed at a negative $2.0 million. The negative balance was due to the difference in the timing of revenues and expenditures.
On December 1, 2009, the Workers Compensation Fund cash balance closed at a negative $3.2 million. This negative balance continued through December 31, 2009, when the fund's cash balance closed at a negative $3.2 million. The Workers Compensation Fund cash balance reached its intra-month low of a negative $4.0 million on December 24, 2009. The negative balance was due to the difference in the timing of revenues and expenditures.
A624 On December 1, 2009, the Medical Assistance Trust Fund cash balance closed at a negative $43.0 million. This negative balance continued through December 31, 2009, when the fund's cash balance closed at a negative $79.4 million. The Medical Assistance Trust Fund cash balance reached its intra-month low of a negative $80.3 million on December 29, 2009. The negative balance was due to the difference in the timing of revenues and expenditures.
On December 1, 2009, the Police and Fire Protection Fund cash balance closed at a negative $37.4 million (its intra-month low). This negative balance continued through December 31, 2009, when the fund's cash balance closed at a negative $32.2 million. The negative balance was due to the difference in the timing of revenues and expenditures.
The Injured Patients and Families Compensation Fund, Utility Public Benefits Fund, Permanent Endowment Fund, Workers Compensation Fund, Medical Assistance Trust 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.
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,
Michael L. Morgan
Secretary

To the Honorable, the Legislature:
In 1997, Act 27, the 1997-1999 Biennial Budget, the Legislature established requirements in state law intended to strengthen protections for children and vulnerable adults in organized care settings. The provisions require, among other things, that designated caregivers conduct background checks on all new and existing staff and bar them from employing anyone who has committed certain crimes or acts. Effective July 1, 2008, the Department of Health and Family Services (DHFS) became the Department of Health Services (DHS) and the DHFS Division of Children and Family Services became the Department of Children and Families (DCF) as a result of 2007 Act 20 (the 2007-09 biennial budget bill). DHS, DCF and (for certain child care providers) counties and local school boards must perform checks on a provider before issuing a license or other credential. Individuals who have committed prohibited crimes or acts may apply to DHS and/or DCF, counties, or school boards for a waiver of the employment or licensing bans upon evidence of rehabilitation.
Sections 48.685 (5g) and 50.065 (5g) of the Wisconsin Statutes direct DHS and DCF to submit an annual report to the Legislature that specifies the number of persons who have sought waivers of employment of licensing bands by requesting to demonstrate that they have been rehabilitated. The report must also specify the number of requests that were approved and the reasons for the success or failure of the requests. DHS has continued to utilize the skills, support and knowledge of its personnel to process all rehabilitation review applications and we are, therefore, submitting a joint report. Attached is the report for 2009.
Questions about this report should be referred to the Department of Health Services, Diane Welsh, Chief Legal Counsel, at 608-266-9622.
Sincerely,
Karen E. Timberlake
Secretary, Department of Health Services
