The Honorable Steven Panagiotakos
Senate Committee on Ways and Means

The Honorable Charles A. Murphy, Chairman
House Committee on Ways and Means

Dear Secretary Kirwan, Chairmen Panagiotakos and Murphy:

In accordance with the requirement in Section 1A and 1B of Chapter 182 of the Acts of 2008 (the FY2009 General Appropriation Act), I am submitting the comparison of Actual Revenue Collections to Budget for FY2009.

The report details actual revenue collection based on amounts accounted for in the official books and records of the Commonwealth-MMARS, as of March 31, 2009.  Certain revenues are collected on a seasonal basis.  There may be other fluctuations as well.  Thus, a gross mathematical extrapolation of twelve month’s of revenue activity may be misleading.

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

Respectfully transmitted,

Martin J. Benison
