Memorandum


    The bill addresses all appropriated funds reguardless of funding source, including special and federal funds which are dedicated for specific purposes. Such proposed state sequestration may result in a number of possible unintended consequences for various goods and services provided by the state or otherwise mandated by federal or state law.
    
    Also, many lines in the budget bill are mandated by statute (for example the School Aid Formula) and may require changes to WV laws.
