  398  documentation must include an estimate of the reduction in
  399  taxable value directly attributable to revisions of Art. VII of
  400  the State Constitution for all county taxing jurisdictions
  401  within the county and shall be prepared by the property

  406  each county taxing jurisdiction; and maximum millage rates that
  407  could have been levied by majority vote pursuant to s. 200.185.
  408  For purposes of this section, each fiscally constrained county’s
  409  reduction in ad valorem tax revenue shall be calculated as 95
  410  percent of the estimated reduction in taxable value times the
  411  lesser of the 2007 applicable millage rate or the applicable
  412  millage rate for each county taxing jurisdiction in the prior
  413  year.

  415  revenues occurring as a result of the implementation of the
  416  revisions to Art. VII of the State Constitution approved in the

  420  value for homesteads established in the preceding calendar year.

  540  removal. Funding for limited source removals associated with
  541  secondary containment upgrades shall be limited to 10 sites in

  550  effective and environmentally beneficial to exceed this amount,
  551  but in no event shall the department authorize costs in excess
  552  of $100,000 for a single facility. Department funding for

  560  and disposal of the contaminated groundwater and preparation of
  561  the source removal report. No other costs associated with the
  562  facility upgrade may be paid with department funds. No more than
  563  $1 million for Department of Transportation limited source
  564  removal projects and $10 million for secondary containment
  565  upgrade limited source removal projects conducted in advance of
  566  the priority order established under paragraph (a) for site
  567  cleanup activities shall be encumbered from the Inland
  568  Protection Trust Fund in any fiscal year. This subparagraph is
  569  repealed effective June 30, 2010 2009.
  570         3. Once free product removal and other source removal
  571  identified in this paragraph are completed at a site, and
  572  notwithstanding the order established by the priority ranking
  573  system under paragraph (a) for site cleanup activities, the
  574  department may reevaluate the site to determine the degree of
  575  active cleanup needed to continue site rehabilitation. Further,
  576  the department shall determine if the reevaluated site qualifies
  577  for natural attenuation monitoring or no further action. If
  578  additional site rehabilitation is necessary to reach no further
  579  action status, the site rehabilitation shall be conducted in the
  580  order established by the priority ranking system under paragraph
  581  (a) and the department is encouraged to utilize natural
  582  attenuation and monitoring where site conditions warrant.

  709  following 4 fiscal years revised in accordance with the original
  710  approved budget for the department for the ensuing fiscal year
  711  together with said roll forwards. The adopted work program may
  712  include only those projects submitted as part of the tentative
  713  work program developed under the provisions of subsection (4)
  714  plus any projects which are separately identified by specific
  715  appropriation in the General Appropriations Act and any roll
  716  forwards approved pursuant to paragraph (6)(c). However, any
  717  transportation project of the department which is identified by
  718  specific appropriation in the General Appropriations Act shall
  719  be deducted from the funds annually distributed to the
  720  respective district pursuant to paragraph (4)(a). In addition,
  721  the department shall not in any year include any project or
  722  allocate funds to a program in the adopted work program that is
  723  contrary to existing law for that particular year. Projects
  724  shall not be undertaken unless they are listed in the adopted
  725  work program.
  726         (b) Notwithstanding paragraph (a), and for the 2009-2010
  727  2008-2009 fiscal year only, the Department of Transportation
  728  shall transfer funds to the Office of Tourism, Trade, and
  729  Economic Development in an amount equal to $20 million
  730  $36,750,000 for the purpose of funding transportation-related
  731  needs of economic development projects, space and aerospace
  732  infrastructure, and other economic development projects. This
  733  transfer shall not reduce, delete, or defer any existing
  734  projects funded, as of July 1, 2009 2008, in the Department of
  735  Transportation’s 5-year work program. This paragraph expires
  736  July 1, 2010 2009.
  737         (c)Notwithstanding paragraph (a) or subparagraph (4)(a)1.,
  738  and for the 2008-2009 fiscal year only, the Department of
  739  Transportation shall fund projects in Specific Appropriations
  740  2063, 2071, 2077, 2079, 2102, 2106, 2109, and 2116 of the 2008
  741  2009 General Appropriations Act. Funding for these specific
  742  appropriations shall be from projects or phases thereof within
  743  the department’s fiscal year 2008-2009 work program not
  744  programmed for contract letting as identified with a work
  745  program contract class code 8 and the box code RV. This funding
  746  shall not negatively impact safety, preservation, maintenance,
  747  or project contingency levels as of July 1, 2008. This paragraph
  748  expires July 1, 2009.
  749         Section 29. In order to implement Specific Appropriation
  750  1570A of the 2009-2010 General Appropriations Act:
  751         (1)The Florida Homebuyer Opportunity Program is created
  752  within the Florida Housing Finance Corporation. The intent of
  753  the Legislature is to ensure that the state derives the maximum
  754  possible economic benefit from all federal homebuyer assistance
  755  programs by providing loans to homebuyers in an amount equal to
  756  a homebuyer’s anticipated federal assistance. For purposes of
  757  this section, the term “anticipated federal assistance” means
  758  the income tax refund or other federal assistance that a
  759  homebuyer has qualified for but has not yet received.
  760         (2)In order to implement and administer the program, the
  761  corporation shall provide loans to prospective homebuyers, the
  762  amount of which shall be equal to the prospective homebuyer’s
  763  anticipated federal assistance. As a condition of obtaining a
  764  loan under the program, the prospective homebuyer must assign to
  765  the corporation his or her right to receive an income tax refund
  766  or other federal assistance in connection with the purchase of a
  767  primary residence.
  768         (3)The program shall provide loans at market rates of
  769  interest, with payments beginning 18 months after the date of
  770  the closing of the loan. If the program receives the assigned
  771  federal assistance within 18 months after the closing date of
  772  the loan, or if the homebuyer pays off the loan within such
  773  period, the program shall waive all interest charges. All
  774  homebuyer opportunity program loans shall be subject to a
  775  service charge established by the corporation in an amount
  776  calculated to cover the administrative costs of the program.
  777         (4)Administration of the program shall be consistent with
  778  the Federal Housing Administration requirements set forth in
  779  Handbook 4155.1, chapter 1, paragraph 1-13A.
  780         (5)In order to limit the state’s exposure and enhance the
  781  effectiveness of the program, the corporation shall negotiate
  782  with private lenders to borrow additional funds to support the
  783  program and shall pledge the appropriate portion of payments
  784  received from borrowers under the program as repayment of such
  785  loans from private lenders.
  786         (6)This section expires July 1, 2010.
  787         Section 30. In order to implement Specific Appropriations
  788  2677 and 2678 of the 2009-2010 General Appropriations Act:
  789         (1)Notwithstanding the provisions of s. 11.13(1), Florida
  790  Statutes, and section 52 of chapter 2008-53, Laws of Florida,
  791  relating to the annual adjustment of salaries for members of the
  792  Legislature, to the contrary, for the 2009-2010 fiscal year
  793  only, the authorized salaries of members of the Legislature in
  794  effect on June 30, 2009, shall be reduced by 6 percent.
  795         (2)Effective June 30, 2010, the annual salaries of members
  796  of the Legislature shall be set at the amounts authorized and in
  797  effect on June 30, 2009, pursuant to subsection (2) of section
  798  52 of chapter 2008-153, Laws of Florida.
  799         (3)This section expires July 1, 2010.
  800         Section 31. In order to implement the appropriations
  801  provided in the 2009-2010 General Appropriations Act to each
  802  agency for cellular phone equipment and services, and to ensure
  803  the cost-effective acquisition and use of wireless devices:
  804         (1)Each agency shall develop a wireless device assignment
  805  plan that limits use of cellular telephones, personal digital
  806  assistants (PDAs), and other devices to only those employees
  807  who, as part of their official assigned duties, must routinely
  808  be immediately available to citizens, supervisors, or
  809  subordinates; be available to respond to emergency situations;
  810  be available to calls outside of regular working hours; have
  811  access to the technology in order to productively perform job
  812  duties in the field; or have limited or no access to a standard
  813  phone, or have no ability to use a personal cell phone, if
  814  needed. The plan shall result in reducing the number of wireless
  815  devices used in each agency.
  816         (2)Each agency must review the use of cellular telephones,
  817  PDAs, and other wireless devices by employees and submit a
  818  report to the President of the Senate and the Speaker of the
  819  House of Representatives by September 1, 2009. The report shall
  820  include:
  821         (a)The criteria that the agency has developed to limit
  822  assignment of wireless devices;
  823         (b)The results of implementing the wireless device
  824  assignment plan, including the reduction in the number of
  825  wireless devices used and the cost of such devices;
  826         (c)The number of wireless devices that remain in use by
  827  type and expenditures by type of device and total agency
  828  expenditures for wireless devices;
  829         (d)The procurement method used to procure wireless devices
  830  and the rationale for procuring wireless devices by any
  831  mechanism other than statewide term contracts and side-by-side
  832  comparison of costs for services purchased through the statewide
  833  term contracts and the mechanisms otherwise used by the agency;
  834  and
  835         (e)A description of innovative techniques the agency has
  836  used to manage wireless devices that have improved efficiency or
  837  reduced costs, which may be applicable for implementation by
  838  other agencies.
  839         Section 32. In order to implement the transfer of moneys to
  840  the General Revenue Fund from trust funds in the 2009-2010
  841  General Appropriations Act, paragraph (b) of subsection (2) of
  842  section 215.32, Florida Statutes, is reenacted to read:
  843         215.32 State funds; segregation.—
  844         (2) The source and use of each of these funds shall be as
  845  follows:
  846         (b)
  847         1. The trust funds shall consist of moneys received by the
  848  state which under law or under trust agreement are segregated
  849  for a purpose authorized by law. The state agency or branch of
  850  state government receiving or collecting such moneys shall be
  851  responsible for their proper expenditure as provided by law.
  852  Upon the request of the state agency or branch of state
  853  government responsible for the administration of the trust fund,
  854  the Chief Financial Officer may establish accounts within the
  855  trust fund at a level considered necessary for proper
  856  accountability. Once an account is established within a trust
  857  fund, the Chief Financial Officer may authorize payment from
  858  that account only upon determining that there is sufficient cash
  859  and releases at the level of the account.
  860         2. In addition to other trust funds created by law, to the
  861  extent possible, each agency shall use the following trust funds
  862  as described in this subparagraph for day-to-day operations:
  863         a. Operations or operating trust fund, for use as a
  864  depository for funds to be used for program operations funded by
  865  program revenues, with the exception of administrative
  866  activities when the operations or operating trust fund is a
  867  proprietary fund.
  868         b. Operations and maintenance trust fund, for use as a
  869  depository for client services funded by third-party payors.
  870         c. Administrative trust fund, for use as a depository for
  871  funds to be used for management activities that are departmental
  872  in nature and funded by indirect cost earnings and assessments
  873  against trust funds. Proprietary funds are excluded from the
  874  requirement of using an administrative trust fund.
  875         d. Grants and donations trust fund, for use as a depository
  876  for funds to be used for allowable grant or donor agreement
  877  activities funded by restricted contractual revenue from private
  878  and public nonfederal sources.
  879         e. Agency working capital trust fund, for use as a
  880  depository for funds to be used pursuant to s. 216.272.
  881         f. Clearing funds trust fund, for use as a depository for
  882  funds to account for collections pending distribution to lawful
  883  recipients.
  884         g. Federal grant trust fund, for use as a depository for
  885  funds to be used for allowable grant activities funded by
  886  restricted program revenues from federal sources.
  887  
  888  To the extent possible, each agency must adjust its internal
  889  accounting to use existing trust funds consistent with the
  890  requirements of this subparagraph. If an agency does not have
  891  trust funds listed in this subparagraph and cannot make such
  892  adjustment, the agency must recommend the creation of the
  893  necessary trust funds to the Legislature no later than the next
  894  scheduled review of the agency’s trust funds pursuant to s.
  895  215.3206.
  896         3. All such moneys are hereby appropriated to be expended
  897  in accordance with the law or trust agreement under which they
  898  were received, subject always to the provisions of chapter 216
  899  relating to the appropriation of funds and to the applicable
  900  laws relating to the deposit or expenditure of moneys in the
  901  State Treasury.
  902         4.a. Notwithstanding any provision of law restricting the
  903  use of trust funds to specific purposes, unappropriated cash
  904  balances from selected trust funds may be authorized by the
  905  Legislature for transfer to the Budget Stabilization Fund and
  906  General Revenue Fund in the General Appropriations Act.
  907         b. This subparagraph does not apply to trust funds required
  908  by federal programs or mandates; trust funds established for
  909  bond covenants, indentures, or resolutions whose revenues are
  910  legally pledged by the state or public body to meet debt service
  911  or other financial requirements of any debt obligations of the
  912  state or any public body; the State Transportation Trust Fund;
  913  the trust fund containing the net annual proceeds from the
  914  Florida Education Lotteries; the Florida Retirement System Trust
  915  Fund; trust funds under the management of the State Board of
  916  Education or the Board of Governors of the State University
  917  System, where such trust funds are for auxiliary enterprises,
  918  self-insurance, and contracts, grants, and donations, as those
  919  terms are defined by general law; trust funds that serve as
  920  clearing funds or accounts for the Chief Financial Officer or
  921  state agencies; trust funds that account for assets held by the
  922  state in a trustee capacity as an agent or fiduciary for
  923  individuals, private organizations, or other governmental units;
  924  and other trust funds authorized by the State Constitution.
  925         Section 33. Paragraph (b) of subsection (4) of section
  926  215.5601, Florida Statutes, is reenacted to read:
  927         215.5601 Lawton Chiles Endowment Fund.—
  928         (4) ADMINISTRATION.—
  929         (b) The endowment shall be managed as an annuity. The
  930  investment objective shall be long-term preservation of the real
  931  value of the net contributed principal and a specified regular
  932  annual cash outflow for appropriation, as nonrecurring revenue.
  933  From the annual cash outflow, a pro rata share shall be used
  934  solely for biomedical research activities as provided in
  935  paragraph (3)(d), until such time as cures are found for
  936  tobacco-related cancer and heart and lung disease. Five percent
  937  of the annual cash outflow dedicated to the biomedical research
  938  portion of the endowment shall be reinvested and applied to that
  939  portion of the endowment’s principal, with the remainder to be
  940  spent on biomedical research activities consistent with this
  941  section. The schedule of annual cash outflow shall be included
  942  within the investment plan adopted under paragraph (a).
  943  Withdrawals other than specified regular cash outflow shall be
  944  considered reductions in contributed principal for the purposes
  945  of this subsection.
  946         Section 34. Section 49 of chapter 2008-153, Laws of
  947  Florida, is repealed.
  948         Section 35. In order to implement the issuance of new debt
  949  authorized in the 2009-2010 General Appropriations Act, and
  950  pursuant to the requirements of s. 215.98, Florida Statutes, the
  951  Legislature determines that the authorization and issuance of
  952  debt for the 2009-2010 fiscal year should be implemented and is
  953  in the best interest of the state and necessary to address a
  954  critical state emergency. This section expires July 1, 2010.
  955         Section 36. In order to implement the funds appropriated in
  956  the 2009-2010 General Appropriations Act for state employee
  957  travel, the funds appropriated to each state agency, which may
  958  be used for travel by state employees, shall be limited during
  959  the 2009-2010 fiscal year to travel for activities that are
  960  critical to each state agency’s mission. Funds may not be used
  961  to pay for travel by state employees to foreign countries, other
  962  states, conferences, staff-training activities, or other
  963  administrative functions unless the agency head has approved in
  964  writing that such activities are critical to the agency’s
  965  mission. The agency head must consider the use of
  966  teleconferencing and other forms of electronic communication to
  967  meet the needs of the proposed activity before approving
  968  mission-critical travel. This section does not apply to travel
  969  for law enforcement purposes, military purposes, emergency
  970  management activities, or public health activities.
  971         Section 37. A section of this act that implements a
  972  specific appropriation or specifically identified proviso
  973  language in the 2009-2010 General Appropriations Act is void if
  974  the specific appropriation or specifically identified proviso
  975  language is vetoed. A section of this act which implements more
  976  than one specific appropriation or more than one portion of
  977  specifically identified proviso language in the 2009-2010
  978  General Appropriations Act is void if all the specific
  979  appropriations or portions of specifically identified proviso
  980  language are vetoed.
  981         Section 38. If any other act passed during the 2009 Regular
  982  Session contains a provision that is substantively the same as a
  983  provision in this act, but that removes or is otherwise not
  984  subject to the future repeal applied to such provision by this
  985  act, the Legislature intends that the provision in the other act
  986  takes precedence and continues to operate, notwithstanding the
  987  future repeal provided by this act.
  988         Section 39. If any provision of this act or its application
  989  to any person or circumstance is held invalid, the invalidity
  990  does not affect other provisions or applications of the act
  991  which can be given effect without the invalid provision or
  992  application, and to this end the provisions of this act are
  993  severable.
  994         Section 40. This act shall take effect July 1, 2009; or, if
  995  this act fails to become a law until after that date, it shall
  996  take effect upon becoming a law and shall operate retroactively
  997  to July 1, 2009.
