15    For the purposes of Article VIII, Section 2 of the 1970

10associated with the recognition of Section 25 of the State

16the State budget shall include the costs to be incurred by the
17State for the budgeted year, to be paid in the next fiscal

22revenues in the current fiscal year, the deficit shall be
23considered as a use of funds in the budgeted fiscal year.
24    Revenues and expenditures shall also include transfers
25between funds that are based on revenues received or costs
26incurred during the budget year.

13fiscal year shall not exceed funds estimated by the General
14Assembly to be available during that year.

16rate of growth of general funds appropriations in a fiscal
17year shall not exceed the rate of growth of the Illinois
18economy. For the purposes of this paragraph, "rate of growth
19of the Illinois economy" means the compound annual growth rate
20of gross domestic product in the State over the preceding 10
21calendar years, using data reported by federal Bureau of

21budgets submitted by the Governor and appropriations made by
