    Sec. 5. Budget Stabilization Fund. The Budget Stabilization Fund is a special fund in the State treasury established for the purpose of reducing the need for future tax increases, maintaining the highest possible bond rating, reducing the need for short term borrowing, providing available resources to meet State obligations whenever casual deficits or failures in revenue occur, and providing the means of addressing budgetary shortfalls. In authorizing transfers from the Budget Stabilization Fund, whenever possible, priority consideration should be given to meeting obligations for secondary and elementary education, child care, and other programs that may provide a direct benefit to children.
