 THAT:                                      The Board of Regents authorizes Montana State University Extension Service and Fire Services Training School to expend reverted appropriations from FY00 and FY01 general fund.

 

EXPLANATION:                      Board of Regents Policy 901.6 and MCA 17-7-304 authorizes campuses and agencies of the Montana University System to expend reverted appropriations subsequent to Regent approval of a spending plan.  The Extension Service and Fire Services Training School plan to spend their reversions on equipment expenditures as outlined on the attached letter to President Gamble.  MCA 17-7-304 specifies that the reversions are to be spent on deferred maintenance or equipment, so the plan by Extension Service and Fire Services Training School comply with legislative intent.
