DIFFERENCE (TOTAL RECOMMENDED AND EXISTING OPERATING BUDGET)

The total means of financing for this program is recommended at 104.0% of the existing operating budget. It represents 285.5% of the total request ($1,551,468) for this program. In addition to the statewide adjustments cited above, the major reason for the increase from the existing operating budget is due to the settlement agreement in the "United States v. State of Louisiana desegregation case. That ruling provides that for a period of ten (10) years (which began in Fiscal Year 1995-96), the state shall appropriate no more than $4.1 million annually to the Southern University Board of Supervisors to develop and implement new programs at its system's campuses in order to enhance the school's chances of attracting other race students. The existing operating budget for this purpose is $3,064,059. In order to meet the funding schedule dictated by the settlement agreement, an additional $115,427 is recommended for Fiscal Year 1998-99. This adjustment, when combined with the existing funding for court-ordered activities, provides $3,179,486 for the following desegregation allocations: Southern University Board of Supervisors ($99,029); Southern University and Agricultural and Mechanical College ($1,885,240); and Southern University at New Orleans ($1,195,217).
