(D) The General Assembly recognizes that the receipt of the funds appropriated in this Part is designed to address a precipitous drop in revenue due to the pending economic crisis and the use of this money to fund recurring expenses is a means to address this shortfall in recurring funds until the economy improves. The General Assembly further recognizes that these funds are temporary in nature and may not be sufficient to address a shortfall in recurring revenue if the current economic crisis extends beyond the period currently contemplated. As a result, the General Assembly strongly encourages state agencies and institutions and school districts receiving these funds to limit the reliance on these funds and make contingency plans that include savings necessary to meet future recurring obligations.
(E) Unexpended federal funds authorized in Part III of the prior appropriation act and in Part III of this act shall be carried forward from the prior fiscal year into the current and subsequent fiscal years and be expended for the same purpose in accordance with federal guidelines.
SECTION 3. This part takes effect upon approval by the Governor.
All acts or parts of acts inconsistent with any of the provisions of Parts IA, IB, II, or III of this act are suspended for Fiscal Year 2010-2011.
If any part, section, subsection, paragraph, subparagraph, sentence, clause, phrase, or word of this act is for any reason held to be unconstitutional or invalid, such holding shall not affect the constitutionality or validity of the remaining portions of this act, the General Assembly hereby declaring that it would have passed this act, and each and every part, section, subsection, paragraph, subparagraph, sentence, clause, phrase, and word thereof, irrespective of the fact that any one or more other parts, sections, subsections, paragraphs, subparagraphs, sentences, clauses, phrases, or words hereof may be declared to be unconstitutional, invalid, or otherwise ineffective.
Except as otherwise specifically provided, this act takes effect immediately upon its approval by the Governor.
