Section 15 requires the Comptroller to transfer any expenditures made against these appropriations to the 2010-11 Budget appropriations after they have become law.

Section 16, the severability clause, provides that if any part of this Act be adjudged by any court of competent jurisdiction to be invalid, such judgment would not invalidate the remainder of the Act.

Section 17 provides that the bill takes effect immediately and is deemed to be in full force and effect on April 1, 2010, and, further, that the appropriations made in the bill will be deemed repealed upon the transfer of expenditures by the Comptroller pursuant to section fifteen of the bill.

STATEMENT IN SUPPORT ::

S 15. All expenditures and disbursements made against the appropri- ations in this act shall, upon final action by the legislature on appro- priation bills submitted by the governor pursuant to article VII of the state constitution for the support of government for the state fiscal
year beginning April 1, 2010, be transferred by the comptroller as expenditures and disbursements to such appropriations for all state departments, agencies, the legislature and the judiciary, as applicable, in amounts equal to the amounts charged against the appropriations in this act for each such department, agency, the legislature and the judi- ciary. S 16. Severability clause. If any clause, sentence, paragraph, subdi- vision, section or part of this act shall be adjudged by any court of competent jurisdiction to be invalid, such judgment shall not affect, impair, or invalidate the remainder thereof, but shall be confined in its operation to the clause, sentence, paragraph, subdivision, section or part thereof directly involved in the controversy in which such judg- ment shall have been rendered. It is hereby declared to be the intent of the legislature that this act would have been enacted even if such invalid provisions had not been included herein. S 17. This act shall take effect immediately and shall be deemed to have been in full force and effect on and after April 1, 2010; provided, however, that upon the transfer of expenditures and disbursements by the comptroller as provided in section fifteen of this act, the appropri- ations made by this act and subject to such section shall be deemed repealed.
