DIFFERENCE (TOTAL RECOMMENDED AND EXISTING OPERATING BUDGET)

 

 

 

 

 

The total means of financing for this program is recommended at 82.8% of the existing operating budget. It represents 81.9% of the total request ($2,171,560) for this program.

The Total Recommended amount above includes $40,000 and one (1) position of Supplementary Recommendations of which $0 is State General Fund for the increased work load due to the increase in out-of-state advertising in the Office of Tourism. Funding of this Supplementary Recommendation is dependent on renewal of the current sales tax rate of 3% on the sales tax suspension of exemptions base.
