Secretary Kristen Lepore
Executive Office of Administration and Finance

The Honorable Karen Spilka, Chairman
Senate Committee on Ways and Means

The Honorable Brian S. Dempsey, Chairman
House Committee on Ways and Means

Dear Secretary Lepore, Chairwoman Spilka and Chairman Dempsey:

In accordance with the requirement in Sections 1A and 1B of Chapter 133 of the Acts of 2016 (the FY2017 General Appropriation Act), I am submitting the comparison of actual revenue collections to budget for the first 3 quarters of FY 2017.

These reports detail actual revenue collections based on amounts accounted for in the official books and records of the Commonwealth-MMARS, as of March 31, 2017 for FY2017.  Certain revenues are collected on a seasonal basis.  There may be other fluctuations as well.  Thus, a gross mathematical extrapolation of twelve months of revenue activity may be misleading.

Additional detail is available in various MMARS reports and will be furnished upon request.


Thomas G. Shack III
