5 Be It Resolved by the Legislature of the State of Idaho:
6 WHEREAS, the Permanent Building Fund is the primary source of funding for
7 maintenance, renovation and construction of facilities for state agencies; and
8 WHEREAS, the Legislature has not undertaken a study of the Permanent
9 Building Fund in nearly forty years; and
10 WHEREAS, the demands on the Permanent Building Fund have significantly
11 escalated in recent years; and
12 WHEREAS, the Permanent Building Fund equaled 8.3% of the General Fund in
13 fiscal year 1962 and will equal 1.7% in fiscal year 2001; and
14 WHEREAS, the lack of adequate funding in the Permanent Building Fund has
15 been an especially severe problem for the state's colleges and universities.
16 NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED by the members of the Second Regular Ses-
17 sion of the Fifty-fifth Idaho Legislature, the Senate and the House of Repre-
18 sentatives concurring therein, that the Legislative Council is authorized to
19 appoint a committee to undertake and complete a study of the Permanent Build-

21 uses of the Permanent Building Fund. The Legislative Council shall determine

24 tance from interested and affected parties who are not members of the Legisla-
26 BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that the cochairmen of this committee shall consult

35 BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that the committee shall make a report detailing
36 its findings, recommendations and proposed legislation, if any, to the First
37 Regular Session of the Fifty-sixth Idaho Legislature.
STATEMENT OF PURPOSE
It has been nearly 40 years since the purposes, needs, funding
and uses of the Fund has undergone a comprehensive evaluation.
Since that time the amount of revenues available through the Fund
for maintenance, renovation and construction of State building
facilities have significantly declined. In the face of that decline
in revenues, needs have accelerated.
This legislation establishes a legislative interim committee to
study and make recommendations concerning the Permanent Building
Fund's revenue sources, needs, and uses.
Normal costs associated with legislative special committee expenses.
