RE:                 Proposed General Purpose Aid for Local Schools (GPA) Funding for FY 2007-08

The enclosed Scenario B subsidy printout (ED 281) for your unit(s) is based on the Governor’s proposed budget as indicated in Administrative Letter #24 (April 9, 2007) and as a result of revisions to the Governor’s budget based on the lowered revenue forecast for FY 2007 and FY 2008.

These preliminary amounts for the FY2007-08 year do not represent final action of the legislature and are dependent upon enactment of statutory changes included in the Governor’s revised budget.
