          Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives in General Court assembled, and by the authority of the same, as follows:

          SECTION 1. To provide for the maintenance of the several departments, boards, commissions and institutions, other services, and for certain permanent improvements, and to meet certain requirements of law, the sums set forth as state appropriations in section two for the several purposes and subject to the conditions specified in sections two and three are hereby appropriated from the General Fund unless specifically designated otherwise, subject to the provisions of law regulating the disbursement of public funds and the approval thereof, for the fiscal year ending June thirtieth, nineteen hundred and ninety-eight. The sums set forth as federal appropriations in section two for the several purposes and subject to the conditions specified in said section two are hereby appropriated from the General Federal Grants Fund, subject to the provisions of law regulating the disbursement of public funds and the approval thereof. Federal funds received in excess of the amount appropriated in section two shall be expended only in accordance with the provisions of section six B of chapter twenty-nine of the General Laws. The amounts of any unexpended balances of federal grant funds received prior to June thirtieth, nineteen hundred ninety-seven, and not included as part of an appropriation item in section two, are hereby made available for expenditure during fiscal year nineteen hundred and ninety-eight, in addition to any amounts appropriated in section two. Notwithstanding the provisions of any general or special law to the contrary, the agencies to which amounts are appropriated in section two from the Intragovernmental Service Fund established pursuant to section two Q of chapter twenty-nine of the General Laws are hereby authorized to expend said amounts for the provision of goods and services to agencies receiving appropriations in section two; provided, that all such expenditures shall be accompanied by a corresponding transfer of funds from an appropriation in section two to the Intragovernmental Service Fund; provided further, that no expenditures shall be made from said Intragovernmental Service Fund which would cause said fund to be in deficit at the close of fiscal year nineteen hundred and ninety-eight; and provided further, that any balance remaining in said Intragovernmental Service Fund at the close of fiscal year nineteen hundred and ninety-eight shall be transferred to the General Fund.

          SECTION 1A. In accordance with Articles LXIII and CVII of the Articles of Amendment to the Constitution and section six D of chapter twenty-nine of the General Laws, it is hereby declared that the amounts of revenue set forth in this section by source for the respective funds of the commonwealth for the fiscal year ending June thirtieth, nineteen hundred and ninety-eight are necessary and sufficient to provide the means to defray the appropriations and expenditures from such funds for such fiscal year as set forth and authorized in section two. The comptroller is hereby authorized and directed to keep a distinct account of actual receipts from each such source by each such fund, to furnish the executive office for administration and finance and the house and senate committees on ways and means with quarterly statements comparing such receipts with the projected receipts set forth herein, and to include a full statement comparing such actual and projected receipts in the annual report for such fiscal year pursuant to section twelve of chapter seven A of the General Laws; provided, that such quarterly and annual reports shall also include detailed statements of any other sources of revenue for the budgeted funds in addition to those specified in this section.
