Outside Section 22
Whenever the secretary of administration and finance determines that reducing the number of state employee positions will result in cost savings for an agency of the executive department during fiscal year 2013, the secretary may reduce allotments under section 9B of chapter 29 of the General Laws, and for the Massachusetts Department of Transportation may reduce the amount of the transfer under item 1595-6368 of section 2E, to reflect some or all of the amounts saved. Within 15 days after any such reduction, the secretary shall notify in writing the house and senate committees on ways and means. The total amount of such reductions shall not exceed $30,000,000 in fiscal year 2013.
This section sets up a mechanism to accomplish up to $30 million in savings from reducing the number of state employee positions in fiscal year 2013.
