(30 ILCS 105/25.2)
    Sec. 25.2. Statutory mandates not designated in law as being subject to appropriation. Notwithstanding any law to the contrary, from the effective date of this Section through fiscal year 2015, with respect to any statutory mandate that is not designated in law as being subject to appropriation, if and only if the Governor determines that funds appropriated for such statutory mandates are insufficient to satisfy those mandates, the Governor may reduce the amount of funds appropriated for some or all of those statutory mandates in amounts he or she deems necessary to accommodate budgetary limitations while attempting to implement such mandates to the extent reasonably practical. The reduction shall become effective upon the Governor giving notice of the reduction to the Speaker of the House of Representatives, the President of the Senate, the Minority Leader of the House of Representatives, the Minority Leader of the Senate, the State Comptroller, the State Treasurer, and the Commission on Government Forecasting and Accountability. Nothing in this Section prohibits adjustments to the Governor's reduction by law.
