                        "The Rainy Day Fund is primarily funded by revenue from oil and natural gas production,"

                        said Senator Charles Perry.  "The amount deposited into the fund is much lower at $50 per

                        barrel than at $100 per barrel.  We need to be cognizant of that and ensure that we have
