Legislative action affecting the July 1, 2009, balance
The beginning balance is based on the 2007-09 general fund beginning balance of $295,541,176, the 2007-09 revised general
fund revenue forecast of $2,681,898,795 and appropriation authority of $2,474,506,863 (general fund appropriations of
$2,461,973,956 plus proposed deficiency appropriations of $10,496,503 and less estimated general fund turnback of $10
million).
Oil extraction tax incentive rates under NDCC Chapter 57-51.1 did not become effective on May 1, 2009, as anticipated in the February
2009 legislative forecast. As a result, oil extraction tax rate incentives approved in HB 1235 became effective. The net effect of these
two changes, if they do not change again prior to June 30, 2011, is estimated to increase permanent oil tax trust fund revenues by $16.5
million for the period beginning May 1, 2009, and ending June 30, 2011. The amount shown does not reflect this estimated increase.
Depending on oil prices, the incentive rates under Chapter 57-51.1 could become effective in October 2009.
The forecasted oil tax revenue collections are based on a number of factors including tax rate incentives and exemptions, oil prices, oil
production, etc.
Actual prices, production and other factors throughout the 2009-11 biennium could increase or decrease actual oil tax revenue
collections by amounts that increase or decrease the $16.5 million discussed above.
Includes a $5 million contingent general fund appropriation for school district deferred maintenance and physical plant
improvement grants, which became effective in February 2008.
North Dakota Century Code Chapter 54-27.2 provides that any amount in the general fund at the end of a biennium in excess
of $65 million must be transferred to the budget stabilization fund except that, beginning July 1, 2009, the balance in the
budget stabilization fund may not exceed 10 percent of the general fund budget approved by the most recently adjourned
Legislative Assembly. The amount shown reflects the current estimated 2009-11 biennium general fund appropriations of
$3,249,365,481; therefore, the maximum balance in the fund is limited to $324,936,548.
HB 1012 – Provides additional general fund turnback and carryover authority
Funding for operations of Dickinson State University (SB 2003)
Reflects $250,000 for livestock disaster assistance for the 2007-09 biennium.
