5:52 am on 12 March 2007

The American Samoa administration has submitted a supplementary budget bill for Fiscal year 2007 of US $1,044.000.

The Legislature gets the biggest chuck of the money $291,000.

Governor Togiola Tulafono says in his letter to Fono leaders that the supplementary budget restores certain line items of the Legislature and Executive branch which were vetoed in the Fiscal Year 2007 budget bill.

The source of funding is projected revenue for the current fiscal year.

The bill becomes effective once it is approved by the House and Senate and is signed into law by the governor.
