I, John Spellman, Governor of the state of Washington, do hereby declare that a financial emergency in the state General Fund exists because anticipated revenues are insufficient to meet anticipated expenditures for the remainder of this biennium.
Pursuant to chapter 43.38 RCW, I hereby direct a revision of allotments of appropriations from the state General Fund to all state agencies, including state General Fund allotments to the Superintendent of Public Instruction for distribution to local school districts in support of state-wide programs, but excluding agencies under the legislative and judicial branches. Each affected agency shall reduce its expenditures from the state General Fund by 2.2 percent of the agency's total biennial state General Fund appropriations and shall submit revised allotment amendments no later than March 1, 1983.
The Director of the Office of Financial Management will issue the detailed instructions that are necessary to implement this order.
EO 82-14 is hereby terminated and superseded by this Order.
