H. 4834

A HOUSE RESOLUTION

EXPRESSING THE SENSE OF THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES THAT NO PERMANENT LAW, I.E., PART II'S, SHOULD BE INCLUDED IN THE GENERAL APPROPRIATIONS BILL FOR FISCAL YEAR 2004-2005, WHEN THE BILL IS UNDER CONSIDERATION IN THE HOUSE BEGINNING THE WEEK OF MARCH 8, 2004.

Whereas, Fiscal Year 2004-2005 promises to be an extraordinarily difficult year for many important and worthwhile state programs because of agency base budget reductions; and

Whereas, the long established practice of adding new permanent law, i.e., Part II's, in what should be a temporary spending measure has sometimes had the effect of increasing appropriations above what they would otherwise be if the permanent law measure had been fully vetted and debated in the committee process; and

Whereas, in this year of base budget cuts it is essential that the House of Representatives take no action that would require increased overall appropriations because of legislation that considered in isolation could not pass the House of Representatives. Now, therefore,

Be it resolved by the House of Representatives:

That the members of the House of Representatives, by this resolution, express the sense of the House of Representatives that no permanent law, i.e., Part II's, should be included in the general appropriations bill for Fiscal Year 2004-2005, when the bill is under consideration in the House beginning the week of March 8, 2004.
