Statement of Purpose / Fiscal Impact



                       STATEMENT OF PURPOSE
                             RS 14252

Last year the 2003 legislature adopted HCR 30 authorizing several
higher education projects to be financed through the Idaho State
Building Authority, including a new Health Care Education
Building for Eastern Idaho Technical College.  The original cost
was $6,360,000 plus a grant for $3,500,000 from the U.S.
Department of Commerce, Economic Development Administration.  It
has now been determined that the terms of the proposed grant, if
accepted, makes it substantially more costly to finance the
state's portion with bonds through the Idaho State Building
Authority.


                          FISCAL IMPACT

This resolution would authorize financing of the total project
funds for the Health Care Education Building, estimated to be a
total of $9,860,000, through the Idaho State Building Authority.
