Question: Lilly County faced with the prospect of declining revenues decides

The fund had the following transactions and events during 2013.
(a) Journal entries to record these transactions in the Lilly Printing Fund;
(b) A statement of net position as of December 31, 2013; and
(c) A statement of revenues, expenses, and changes in net position for the year ended December 31, 2013.
