House Committee on Ways and Means

Dear Secretary Gonzales, Chairmen Panagiotakos and Murphy:

In accordance with the requirement in Sections 1A and 1B of Chapter 27 of the Acts of 2009 (the FY2010 General Appropriation Act), I am submitting the comparison of Actual Revenue Collections to Budget for final balances for the third quarter of the FY 2010.

This report details actual revenue collection based on amounts accounted for in the official books and records of the Commonwealth-MMARS as of March 31, 2010 for FY 2010.  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.

We intend to file final FY 2010 report on or before August 30, 2010.

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

Respectfully transmitted,

Martin J. Benison
