SPV-8: Is the $30 million set aside for this program secure from the spending freeze and budgets cuts that the Governor has enacted? Is this a viable Procurement?

Yes, this is a viable procurement. While Public Act 99-0002 (signed into law on March 26, 2015) features a significant transfer of funds from the Renewable Energy Resources Fund to the General Revenue Fund, it also specifically and intentionally preserves $30 million in the Renewable Energy Resources Fund to cover contracts stemming from this procurement. Therefore the budget for this procurement will not be affected.
