131.41 Family services stabilization fund.

There is hereby created in the state treasury the family services stabilization fund. The fund shall consist of moneys deposited into it pursuant to acts of the general assembly. The director of budget and management, with advice from the director of job and family services, may transfer moneys in the family services stabilization fund to the general revenue fund for the department of job and family services. Moneys may be transferred due to identified shortfalls for family services activities, such as higher caseloads, federal funding changes, and unforeseen costs due to significant state policy changes. Before transfers are authorized, the director of budget and management shall exhaust the possibilities for transfers of moneys within the department of job and family services to meet the identified shortfall. Transfers shall not be used to fund policy changes not contemplated by acts of the general assembly. Any investment earnings of the family services stabilization fund shall be credited to that fund.
