    Whereas, The Governor submitted to the Legislature the Executive Budget Document, dated January 8, 2014, which included a statement of the State Fund, General Revenue, setting forth therein the cash balance as of July 1, 2013, and further included the estimate of revenues for fiscal year 2014, less net appropriation balances forwarded and regular appropriations for the fiscal year 2014; and

    Whereas, Current economic and fiscal trends will result in projected year-end revenue deficits, including projected shortfalls in Personal Income Tax, Consumer Sales and Use Tax, and Interest Income; and

    Whereas, The total projected year-end revenue deficit for the General Revenue Fund is estimated at $60 million; and

    Whereas, On January 3, 2014, the Governor, after careful analysis of fiscal year 2014 spending trends to date, issued Executive Order 1-14 to effect a spending reduction of targeted appropriation to aid in the balancing of the fiscal year 2014 budget; and

    Whereas, This spending reduction is expected to generate a savings of approximately $33 million; and

    Whereas, There is remaining an expected $27 million deficit in the budget that must be balanced; therefore
