1 the estimated revenues from sources other than taxation, and an
2 estimate of the amount required to be raised by taxation. The
3 amounts recommended by the Governor for appropriation to the
4 respective departments, offices and institutions shall be
5 formulated according to the various functions and activities
6 for which the respective department, office or institution of
7 the State government (including the elective officers in the
8 executive department and including the University of Illinois
9 and the judicial department) is responsible. The amounts
10 relating to particular functions and activities shall be
11 further formulated in accordance with the object
12 classification specified in Section 13 of the State Finance
13 Act.
14     The Governor shall not propose expenditures and the General
15 Assembly shall not enact appropriations that exceed the
16 resources estimated to be available, as provided in this
17 Section.
18     For the purposes of Article VIII, Section 2 of the 1970
19 Illinois Constitution, the State budget for the following funds
20 shall be prepared on the basis of revenue and expenditure
21 measurement concepts that are in concert with generally
22 accepted accounting principles for governments:
23         (1) General Revenue Fund.
24         (2) Common School Fund.
25         (3) Educational Assistance Fund.
26         (4) Road Fund.

6 revenues estimated to be received during the budgeted year,
7 plus the estimated receipts due the State as of June 30 of the

9 lapse period following the budgeted year, minus the receipts
10 collected during the first 2 months of the budgeted year that
11 became due to the State in the year before the budgeted year.
12 Revenues shall also include estimated federal reimbursements
13 associated with the recognition of Section 25 of the State
14 Finance Act liabilities. For any budgeted fund for which
15 current year revenues are anticipated to exceed expenditures,
16 the surplus shall be considered to be a resource available for
17 expenditure in the budgeted fiscal year.
18     Expenditure estimates for the budgeted funds included in
19 the State budget shall include the costs to be incurred by the
20 State for the budgeted year, to be paid in the next fiscal
21 year, excluding costs paid in the budgeted year which were
22 carried over from the prior year, where the payment is
23 authorized by Section 25 of the State Finance Act. For any
24 budgeted fund for which expenditures are expected to exceed
25 revenues in the current fiscal year, the deficit shall be
26 considered as a use of funds in the budgeted fiscal year.

3 incurred during the budget year.
4     Appropriations for expenditures shall also include all
5 anticipated statutory continuing appropriation obligations

7 year.

11 Section and report those estimates to the General Assembly and

17 Assembly to be available during that year.
