    FY12 EEC Budget Recommendation: Option #2

    Budget Option #2 – Reduced Request.

    In recognition of the economic environment, EEC would reduce its budget request by amending the following:

    • Admin: Staffing Request

      • Value: $379,114

      • Instead of 11 positions, EEC would further its request to the following six essential positions:

        • Fiscal Monitors: 2 positions ($118,584)

        • Director of Community Partnership and Outreach: ($75,000)

        • Child Care Licensing Specialist: 2 positions ($100,530)

        • Chief Operations Officer: ($85,000)

      • Overall admin increase would be $683,973 ($304k for maintenance and $379K for 6 additional positions)

    • Not include the increase to Mental Health (thus keeping it at FY11 levels).

    • Remove the $500K Professional Development increase.


    Fy2012 potential impacts the good the bad and the ugly

    FY2012 Potential Impacts The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly

    • The Good: Potential increase in CCDF funding. The FFY2011 federal CCDF grant award may increase by $9M in discretionary and $15M in Matching funding. This increase, particularly in the discretionary award (since it does not need to be matched) could create an opportunity for additional funding from the Legislature in FY12.

    • The Bad: “Based on modeling done by A&F, it is clear that we will again have a gap between projected revenues and spending and therefore will not be able to afford maintenance levels of funding in FY12 and FY13.” This quote is from ANF and is the reality of the times we are navigating. FY12 spending caps will reflect this reality for most agencies. Governor Patrick and his administration have been extremely generous with the education budgets, but even this generosity is bound by the economic climate.

    • And the Ugly: Ballot Question 3 would reduce the Sales Tax rate in Massachusetts from 6.25% to 3%. This would eliminate $2.5B in annual state revenue. This, in addition to an already existing $2B structural deficit that needs to be remedied in FY2012, would have catastrophic impact on state government spending including EEC.
