Dear Chairmen Panagiotakos and Murphy:

Under Section 4 of Chapter 377 of the Acts of 2008, I am submitting the attached transfer plan to offset unavoidable deficiencies in certain accounts with other funds within the relevant executive office. These transfers are made within the executive offices, do not exceed 5% of the amounts available in the transferring account, and will be made in the accounting system on May 26.

In some cases, on behalf of the Governor, I am also notifying you of a revised allotment reduction plan for specific accounts that had been reduced by the Governor via his authority under Chapter 29, Section 9C, but only in order to transfer the funding to the deficient accounts. The original total amount reduced remains in place; we are simply reallocating the funds to cover a deficiency that had been anticipated by our FY2009 fiscal solution.

Thank you for your efforts to provide this flexibility to address the extreme fiscal conditions that we are experiencing in FY2009.


Leslie A. Kirwan
