Secretary Jay Gonzalez
Executive Office of Administration and Finance
The Honorable Stephen M. Brewer
Senate Committee on Ways and Means
The Honorable Brian S. Dempsey, Chairman
House Committee on Ways and Means
Dear Secretary Gonzalez, Chairmen Brewer and Dempsey:
In accordance with the requirement in Sections 1A and 1B of Chapter 27 of the Acts of 2009 (the FY2010 General Appropriation Act), as well as Sections 1A and 1B of Chapter 131 of the Acts of 2010 (the FY2011 General Appropriation Act), I am submitting the comparison of Actual Revenue Collections to Budget for final balances for FY2010 and for the first three quarter of FY 2011.
These reports detail actual revenue collections based on amounts accounted for in the official books and records of the Commonwealth-MMARS, as of June 30, 2010 for FY 2010; and as of March 31, 2011 for FY 2011. 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.
Martin J. Benison
