* In addition to the figure shown above, Senate Bill 862, 2014 states that $400 million shall be available to the High Speed Rail Authority beginning in Fiscal Year 2015-16, as repayment of a loan to the General Fund. This money shall be repaid as necessary, based on the financial needs of the High-Speed Rail project.

** Beginning in Fiscal Year 2015-16, these programs receive continuous appropriations from the Cap-and-Trade auctions, based on the percentages identified in statute. The actual dollar amounts are not known until after the quarterly auctions close.

*** "Funding to Date" figures represent appropriations through Fiscal Year 2017-18 and have been rounded to the nearest million dollars. Appropriations from previous fiscal years may be retroactively adjusted to account for Budget Control Sections or for special legislation (e.g. Trailer Bills). The reported cumulative appropriations were estimated based on published budgets, legislation, and quarterly auction results and may not reflect current budgetary authority items.
