New/Adjusted Funds Request
W.S. 9-2-1005(b) allows the Governor to increase legislative appropriations from non-general fund sources. Through the B-11 process, budgets can be increased with federal and other funds that have NOT been appropriated by the Legislature. This makes it possible for agencies to apply for and receive federal and other funds that are newly available or that an agency has not previously received. However, before such funding can go through this process, W.S. 9-1-208 requires that the Governor give prior approval for associated NAFRs.
