Statement of Purpose / Fiscal Impact

Statement of Purpose

This bill re-aligns the Arts Commission’s spending authority to match the distribution of federal grant funds. The agency distributes approximately 90% of its grant funds prior to June 30th and the other 10% in the following fiscal year. Previously, the Arts Commission would request non-cognizable spending authority for the 10% in the next fiscal year; however, the agency request did not meet the requirements of non-cognizable funding. This bill increases the Commission on the Arts on-going spending authority for federal grant funds, and eliminates the need to request annual non-cognizable spending authority increases or supplemental appropriations for grant fund carryover.


Fiscal Note

This bill increases the Arts Commission’s spending authority by $45,700 in the Trustee and Benefits category on an on-going basis, and allows the Commission to distribute 90% of current year grants and 10% of previous year grants each fiscal year.
