EXPRESS DUTIES UPON THE GENERAL ASSEMBLY, INCLUDING THE

COMMONWEALTH, REGARDLESS OF THEIR SOURCE. THE SUPREME COURT
HAS REPEATEDLY AFFIRMED THAT, "IT IS FUNDAMENTAL WITHIN
PENNSYLVANIA'S TRIPARTITE SYSTEM THAT THE GENERAL ASSEMBLY
ENACTS THE LEGISLATION ESTABLISHING THOSE PROGRAMS WHICH THE
STATE PROVIDES FOR ITS CITIZENS AND APPROPRIATES THE FUNDS
NECESSARY FOR THEIR OPERATION."
(4) PURSUANT TO SECTION 13 OF ARTICLE VIII OF THE
CONSTITUTION OF PENNSYLVANIA, THE GENERAL ASSEMBLY IS
EXPLICITLY REQUIRED TO ADOPT A BALANCED COMMONWEALTH BUDGET.
GIVEN THE UNPREDICTABILITY AND POTENTIAL INSUFFICIENCY OF
REVENUE COLLECTIONS, VARIOUS CHANGES IN STATE LAW RELATING TO
THE 2017-2018 BUDGET IMPLEMENTATION AND THE ADMINISTRATION OF
STATE GOVERNMENT WHICH IMPACT REVENUE MAY BE REQUIRED TO
DISCHARGE THIS CONSTITUTIONAL OBLIGATION.
(5) SECTION 11 OF ARTICLE III OF THE CONSTITUTION OF
PENNSYLVANIA REQUIRES THE ADOPTION OF A GENERAL APPROPRIATION
ACT THAT EMBRACES "NOTHING BUT APPROPRIATIONS." WHILE ACTUAL
ITEMS OF APPROPRIATION CAN BE CONTAINED IN A GENERAL
APPROPRIATIONS ACT, THE ACHIEVEMENT AND IMPLEMENTATION OF A
COMPREHENSIVE BUDGET INVOLVES ADMINISTRATIVE ACTION RELATED
TO APPROPRIATIONS. ULTIMATELY, THE BUDGET HAS TO BE BALANCED
UNDER SECTION 13 OF ARTICLE VIII OF THE CONSTITUTION OF
PENNSYLVANIA. THIS MAY NECESSITATE ADMINISTRATIVE CHANGES AND
THE ENACTMENT OF STATUTES TO ACHIEVE FULL COMPLIANCE WITH
THESE CONSTITUTIONAL PROVISIONS.
(6) AMONG THE MANY ADMINISTRATIVE CHALLENGES FACED BY
THE COMMONWEALTH IS USE OF FINANCIAL RESOURCES FOR HEALTH
CARE. CENTRAL TO THE HEALTH CARE CRISIS IN THIS COMMONWEALTH
IS SUBSTANCE DEPENDENCE.

ACT TO PROVIDE FOR THE ADMINISTRATIVE IMPLEMENTATION OF THE
2017-2018 COMMONWEALTH BUDGET.
(8) EVERY PROVISION OF THIS ACT RELATES TO THE
ADMINISTRATIVE IMPLEMENTATION OF THE OPERATING BUDGET OF THE
COMMONWEALTH FOR THIS FISCAL YEAR, ADDRESSING IN VARIOUS WAYS

IMPLEMENT THE 2017-2018 COMMONWEALTH BUDGET WITHOUT
SPECIFICALLY APPROPRIATING PUBLIC MONEY FROM THE GENERAL
FUND. THIS ACT PROVIDES ADMINISTRATIVE ACCOUNTABILITY FOR
SPENDING AND MAKES OTHER CHANGES NECESSARY TO IMPACT THE
AVAILABILITY OF REVENUE IN ORDER TO MEET THE REQUIREMENTS OF
