Governor's Recommendations 2022-23

Appropriations intended for only one year are automatically inversed (added or reduced) from the budget because these
amounts were carried forward from the prior fiscal year. This does not reflect a budget increase or reduction. It is
merely carrying out the intent of the Legislature from the prior fiscal year.

Governor's Recommendations 2022-23

The Governor's Budget Recommendation for Fiscal Year 2022-23 includes $1,000,000 in nonrecurring General Revenue (GR) for
litigation expenses in order to acquire legal representation for lawsuits related to elections and other departmental
litigation. The department has legal staff and resources to handle on-going lawsuits. In recent years, the department has
been involved in a large number of time-sensitive, short-deadline cases, and the resources required to effectively handle
the litigation duties have necessitated hiring outside counsel.
