The bill would abolish funds, accounts, and revenue dedications created
by the Seventy-seventh Legislature, Regular Session, unless specifically
exempted in this bill.

The bill identifies the funds, accounts and revenue dedications exempt
from abolition.  The bill also lists funds that, if created by the
Seventy-seventh Legislature, would become accounts in the General Revenue
Fund rather than separate funds.

The bill would re-create the Pan American Games Trust Fund initially
created in the Seventy-sixth Legislature.

The bill would allow the Comptroller, as directed by the legislature, to
reduce dedicated accounts in the amounts by which estimated revenues and
unobligated balances exceeded appropriations on August 31, 2003.
Local Government Impact
No fiscal implication to units of local government is anticipated.
