STATEMENT OF PURPOSE RS08719C1 The purpose of this proposed legislation is to allow the Idaho State Treasurer to continue to purchase the guaranteed portion of Small Business Administration (SBA) loans as a portion of the state's investment portfolio. Currently, the State Treasurer does this with the Underground Storage Tank program. The UST/SBA program will sunset on February 22, 1999. This legislation will permit the State of Idaho to continue participation in the SBA low document loan program for all small businesses in the state, not just businesses with underground storage tanks. The state does not make the loans but would continue to purchase the guaranteed portion of the loans from the SBA. FISCAL NOTE There will be no additional costs to the Treasurer's Office for the administration of this program as it is already in place with the current Underground Storage Tank program. The State of Idaho will realize an increase in interest income of approximately S83,000.00 the first year, over what would normally be earned in investments such as Treasury Notes. This amount will increase per year until at the end of 10 years, the added interest income will amount to about $1 million per year for the state. CONTACT: Ron G.
