Section 29-9-5Withdrawals from Budget Stabilization Fund.
(a) Except as provided in Section 29-9-3, amounts in the Education Trust Fund Budget Stabilization Fund may be withdrawn only to prevent proration in the Education Trust Fund. The Governor must certify to the state Comptroller and notify the Legislature that proration would occur in the Education Trust Fund before funds may be withdrawn. Following the certification and notification by the Governor, withdrawals may be made from the Education Trust Fund Budget Stabilization Fund; however, withdrawals shall be limited to the amount of the anticipated proration and funds allotted only to the extent necessary to avoid proration of appropriations from the Education Trust Fund. Any funds withdrawn from the Budget Stabilization Fund in excess of the amount necessary to avoid proration shall be transferred back to the Budget Stabilization Fund within 30 days after the end of the fiscal year in which withdrawals are made.
(b) Amounts in the Education Trust Fund Capital Fund shall be used only for construction, reconstruction, alteration, and improvement of buildings and other facilities for public education purposes in the state, including the acquisition of sites and equipment for buildings and facilities, and for the payment of indebtedness incurred for any of those purposes. Amounts in the Education Trust Fund Capital Fund shall be budgeted and allotted in accordance with Sections 41-4-80 through 41-4-96 and Sections 41-19-1 through 41-19-12 but shall not be limited by the fiscal year appropriation cap.
