(2) the amount of forecast adjustments, as determined by the commissioner of management and budget in consultation with the council, necessary to match (i) actual special transportation service program costs in the prior fiscal year, and (ii) adjusted program costs forecasted for the second year of the current biennium, for a forecast prepared in the first year of the biennium; less

 

(3) funds identified for the special transportation service from nonstate sources.

 

(d) In conjunction with each February and November forecast, the council must submit a financial review of the special transportation service to the chairs and ranking minority members of the legislative committees with jurisdiction over transportation policy and finance and to the commissioner of management and budget.  At a minimum, the financial review must include:

 

(1) a summary of special transportation service sources of funds and expenditures for the prior two fiscal years and each fiscal year of the forecast period, which must include:

 

(i) a breakout by expenditures categories; and

 

(ii) information that is sufficient to identify a conversion between state fiscal years and the fiscal years of the council;

 

(2) details on cost assumptions used in the forecast;

 

(3) information on ridership and farebox recovery rates for the prior two fiscal years and each fiscal year of the forecast period;


Journal of the House - 41st Day - Saturday, April 17, 2021 - Top of Page 5406
