On April 1, 1982, I issued Executive Order 82-05, which, as required by law, reduced by 4.9 percent state General Fund allotments in order to balance the General Fund. Since that time, the legislature has passed measures both to increase revenues to the General Fund and to reduce expenditures therefrom, thus eliminating the need for the 4.9 percent reduction.
NOW, THEREFORE, I, John Spellman, Governor of the State of Washington, by virtue of the power vested in me, do hereby rescind Executive Order 82-05. The Office of Financial Management will issue instructions to all agencies concerning allotment requirements resulting from the revenue and expenditure actions of the 1982 legislative sessions.
have hereunto set
my hand and caused the seal of the State of
Washington to be affixed at Olympia this
20th day of April A.D., Nineteen hundred and eighty-two.
Deputy Secretary of State
