8     Sec. 8h. Transfers to General Revenue Fund.
9     (a) Except as provided in subsection (b), notwithstanding
10 any other State law to the contrary, the Governor may, through
11 June 30, 2007, from time to time direct the State Treasurer and
12 Comptroller to transfer a specified sum from any fund held by
13 the State Treasurer to the General Revenue Fund in order to
14 help defray the State's operating costs for the fiscal year.
15 The total transfer under this Section from any fund in any
16 fiscal year shall not exceed the lesser of (i) 8% of the
17 revenues to be deposited into the fund during that fiscal year
18 or (ii) an amount that leaves a remaining fund balance of 25%
19 of the July 1 fund balance of that fiscal year. In fiscal year
20 2005 only, prior to calculating the July 1, 2004 final
21 balances, the Governor may calculate and direct the State
22 Treasurer with the Comptroller to transfer additional amounts
23 determined by applying the formula authorized in Public Act
24 93-839 to the funds balances on July 1, 2003. No transfer may

1 be made from a fund under this Section that would have the
2 effect of reducing the available balance in the fund to an

11 Practice Nursing Act applies. Notwithstanding any other
12 provision of this Section, for fiscal year 2004, the total
13 transfer under this Section from the Road Fund or the State
14 Construction Account Fund shall not exceed the lesser of (i) 5%
15 of the revenues to be deposited into the fund during that
16 fiscal year or (ii) 25% of the beginning balance in the fund.
17 For fiscal year 2005 through fiscal year 2007, no amounts may
18 be transferred under this Section from the Road Fund, the State

24 other resources anticipated to be available in the fund in that
25 fiscal year.
26     The State Treasurer and Comptroller shall transfer the
27 amounts designated under this Section as soon as may be
28 practicable after receiving the direction to transfer from the
29 Governor.

31 under the Community Senior Services and Resources Act.
32     (c) This Section does not apply to moneys set aside in the
