HER MAJESTY, by and with the advice and consent of the Legislative Assembly of Manitoba, enacts as follows:

Definition of "Main Estimates"

1           In this Act "Main Estimates" refers to The Main Estimates of Expenditure of the Province of Manitoba for the fiscal year ending March 31, 1989, tabled in the Assembly.

Money granted for 1988-1989

2           From and out of the Consolidated Fund of the province there may be paid and applied a sum of $4,097,810,800. towards defraying the several charges and expenses of the public service of the province not otherwise provided for, from April 1, 1988, to March 31, 1989, both dates inclusive, and being the amount of each of the items voted as set forth in Schedule A of this Act.

Authority for future commitments

3(1)        In addition to expenditure authority granted under section 2, authority is granted to the government to commit on or before March 31, 1989, expenditures not to exceed in total an estimated aggregate amount of $300,000,000. for the purposes of ensuring completion of projects or fulfilling of contracts initiated prior to and during the fiscal year ending March 31, 1989, regardless of the year in which the expenditures will be made in respect of those commitments, but the expenditures for those commitments shall not be made in the fiscal year ending March 31, 1989, without additional expenditure authority being granted.

Voting of funds in subsequent years

3(2)        The estimated amount of expenditures which have been committed under subsection (1) shall be included in the estimates of the fiscal year in which the expenditures are expected to be made.

4           In addition to expenditure authority granted under section 2, authority is granted to the government to fund liabilities totalling $97,910,683. recorded by the Province in the Public Accounts as unfunded liabilities at March 31, 1988 and, for this purpose, to make payments to each agency reported under that heading in those Public Accounts.

Canada-Manitoba Enabling Vote

5(1)        The Minister of Finance may, at his discretion, transfer for the same purposes, any part or all of the money the expenditure of which, for the Canada-Manitoba Enabling Vote, is to be authorized under service heading Canada-Manitoba Enabling Vote (XXVI) and in Appropriation No. 1 - Canada-Manitoba Enabling Vote under that heading, to any appropriation under any service heading of the Main Estimates.

Adjustments consequent upon transfers for Northern Development Agreement - Canada-Manitoba

5(2)        Where money is transferred under subsection (1) to an appropriation for Northern Development Agreement - Canada-Manitoba under a service heading of the Main Estimates, the amount indicated in the Main Estimates as recoverable from the Department of Northern Affairs shall be increased by an equivalent amount so that the total appropriation authorized to be expended under that service heading of the Main Estimates, less recoveries, remains unchanged and the amount authorized for expenditure for Northern Development Agreement - Canada-Manitoba under service heading Northern Affairs (XIX) in Schedule A and in Appropriation No. 4 - Northern Development Agreement - Canada-Manitoba or Appropriation No. 6 - Expenditures Related to Capital under that heading, shall be increased by the amount transferred so that the total of appropriations authorized to be expended under service heading Northern Affairs (XIX) is increased by that amount.

5(3)        Where money authorized to be expended under any service heading set out in Schedule A for purposes other than Northern Development Agreement - Canada-Manitoba is to be expended for purposes of Northern Development Agreement - Canada-Manitoba, the amount indicated in the Main Estimates as recoverable from the Department of Northern Affairs shall be increased by an amount equivalent to the amount transferred so that the total of appropriations authorized to be expended under that service heading, less recoveries, is reduced by the amount transferred and the amount authorized for expenditure for Northern Development Agreement - Canada-Manitoba, under service heading Northern Affairs (XIX) in Schedule A and in Appropriation No. 4 - Northern Development Agreement - Canada-Manitoba or Appropriation No. 6 - Expenditures Related to Capital under that heading, shall be increased by the amount transferred so that the total of appropriations authorized to be expended under service heading Northern Affairs (XIX) is increased by that amount.

5(4)        Where money is transferred under subsection (1) to an appropriation for Canada-Manitoba Winnipeg Core Area Agreement or Canada-Manitoba Winnipeg Core Area Renewed Agreement under a service heading of the Main Estimates other than the service heading Urban Affairs (XX), the amount indicated in the Main Estimates as recoverable from the Department of Urban Affairs shall be increased by an equivalent amount so that the total appropriation authorized to be expended under that service heading of the Main Estimates, less recoveries, remains unchanged and the amount authorized for expenditure for Canada-Manitoba Winnipeg Core Area Agreement or Canada-Manitoba Winnipeg Core Area Renewed Agreement under service heading Urban Affairs (XX) in Schedule A and in Appropriation No. 3 - Urban Policy Co-ordination or Appropriation No. 4 - Expenditures Related to Capital under that heading, shall be increased by the amount transferred so that the total of appropriations authorized to be expended under service heading Urban Affairs (XX) is increased by that amount.

Adjustments for entries for sub-appropriation transfers to Core Area Agreements

5(5)        Where money authorized to be expended under any service heading set out in Schedule A other than service heading Urban Affairs (XX) for purposes other than Canada-Manitoba Winnipeg Core Area Agreement or Canada-Manitoba Winnipeg Core Area Renewed Agreement is to be expended for purposes of Canada-Manitoba Winnipeg Core Area Agreement or Canada-Manitoba Winnipeg Core Area Renewed Agreement, the amount indicated in the Main Estimates as recoverable from the Department of Urban Affairs may be increased by an amount equivalent to the amount transferred so that the total of appropriations authorized to be expended under that service heading, less recoveries, is reduced by the amount transferred and the amount authorized for expenditure for Canada-Manitoba Winnipeg Core Area Agreement or Canada-Manitoba Winnipeg Core Area Renewed Agreement, under service heading Urban Affairs (XX) in Schedule A and in Appropriation No. 3 - Urban Policy Co-ordination or Appropriation No. 4 - Expenditures Related to Capital under that heading, shall be increased by the amount transferred so that the total of appropriations authorized to be expended under service heading Urban Affairs (XX) is increased by that amount.

Authority for expenditures in anticipation of recoveries

6           Where an item in an appropriation for a department of government as shown in the Main Estimates showed that a nil amount or a net amount of expenditure was to be authorized for the purpose of the department rendering services or providing materials, supplies or property to another department or agency of the government, on the basis that all or a portion of the total amount to be expended by the first mentioned department for those purposes would be recovered from that other department or other agency in anticipated amounts as set out in the item in the Main Estimates, the amount that may be expended through the first mentioned department for the purposes of rendering the services or providing the materials, supplies or property, in the fiscal year ending March 31, 1989 shall be the total of:

(a) the net amount voted in the item, whether or not it is a nil vote; and

(b) the anticipated amount of the recoveries as set out in the item in the Main Estimates to the extent that it is reasonably anticipated that the recoveries will be made.

Money authorized for agreements with Canada

7(1)        Money authorized under this Act to be expended for or in respect of any agreement with the Government of Canada may be expended in anticipation of the agreement being entered into notwithstanding that the agreement has not been, and never is, entered into.

7(2)        Money authorized under this Act to be expended for or in respect of any agreement with the Government of Canada may be expended on projects or for costs in anticipation that the agreement when entered into, will provide for the sharing of the amount expended or the sharing of certain costs of the project, notwithstanding that the agreement when entered into does not provide for such sharing.

Lapse of appropriations

8           Any part of the money under Schedule A appropriated by this Act out of the Consolidated Fund that may be unexpended at the end of March 31, 1989, shall not be expended thereafter except in payment of accounts and expenses incurred on or prior to the said day; and all balances remaining unexpended after the said date or at such subsequent date as is authorized by the provisions of The Financial Administration Act shall lapse and be written off.
