Statement of Purpose / Fiscal Impact

Statement of Purpose

This fiscal year 2003 supplemental appropriation provides funding to pay the costs to treat a zone of tussock moth infestation in the Moscow Mountain Area. Last session JFAC included a section in the department’s appropriation bill to raise the cap on the Land Board’s use of forest pest deficiency warrants from $250,000 to $500,000 for 2002 and stipulated that costs for treatments other than to state lands were to be reimbursed according to cooperative agreements approved by the State Board of Land Commissioners. JFAC recommended cooperating owners pay 12.5% of the total costs of treatments to their properties. The Land Board ultimately approved that match rate. The IDL treated 30,107 acres of which 21,769 were industry owned (72%), 3,820 were non-industrial private owners (13%), 150 acres were owned by the Coeur d’Alene Tribe (.5%), and 4,368 acres were owned by the state endowments (14.5%).



Fiscal Note

Total costs of the 2002 project were $1,245,000 of which $600,000 (48%) was covered by a USFS grant. Landowners contributed $160,000 (12.5% with a few adjustments) leaving $485,000 (39%) in deficiency to be covered by the General Fund. This bill includes $148,900 for personnel costs to cover seasonal employee wages and permanent employee overtime costs and $1,096,100 in operating expenditures to pay for contract helicopter spraying, meals, lodging, supplies and miscellaneous expenses.
