Statement of Purpose / Fiscal Impact

Statement of Purpose

This is a fiscal year 2004 supplemental appropriation to the Department of Agriculture in the amount of $147,200 from the General Fund. The Department received a federal grant for Specialty Crop Assistance in the fall of 2001. The grant funds were received in advance and deposited into the state treasury until disbursed. The interest was credited to the General Fund. However, the federal grant required that all interest on advances be reimbursed to the Commodity Credit Corporation (CCC). ISDA has since set up a special fund to accrue interest for repayment to the CCC; however, monies are provided to reimburse the federal agency for interest accrued before July 1, 2003. The original grant was $4.2 million and does not expire until FY 2005.



Fiscal Note

This legislation appropriates $147,200 to the Department of Agriculture from the General Fund. The monies are to be used to repay interest to the Commodity Credit Corporation. The amount is based on the ending quarterly balances remaining from the Specialty Crop Grant and State Treasurer’s average quarterly interest rates from December 2001 through June 2003.
