- State Budget. For MSJC, the Governor's May Revise is currently the "worst
case scenario" for the system. Potential loss to MSJC is $1.3m to the
general fund apportionment; $500k reduction to block grant and scheduled maintenance,
and $200k reduction to categorical accounts. In total, approximately $2m reduction
from the already reduced 2002-03 budgets. The final budget is still subject
