DIFFERENCE (TOTAL RECOMMENDED AND EXISTING OPERATING BUDGET)

 

 

 

 

 

The total means of financing for this program is recommended at 101.1% of the existing operating budget. It represents 78.7% of the total request ($4,142,008) for this program. In addition to statewide adjustments, the major reason for the increase from the existing operating budget is due to an adjustment pursuant to the settlement agreement in the "United States v. State of Louisiana" desegregation case, which provides that for a period of ten(10) years (which began in Fiscal Year 1995-96), the state shall appropriate no more than $1.6 million annually to the University of Louisiana Board of Trustees to develop and implement new programs at Grambling State University in order to enhance the school’s chances of attracting other race students. The existing operating budget for this purpose is $1,334,073. In order to meet the funding schedule dictated by the settlement agreement, an additional $41,353 is recommended for Fiscal Year 1999-2000.
