]]]] LEGISLATURE OF THE STATE OF IDAHO ]]]] Fifty-ninth Legislature First Regular Session - 2007 IN THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES HOUSE BILL NO. 320 BY APPROPRIATIONS COMMITTEE 1 AN ACT 2 DIRECTING THE STATE CONTROLLER TO TRANSFER MONEYS TO THE WATER MANAGEMENT 3 FUND. 4 Be It Enacted by the Legislature of the State of Idaho: 5 SECTION 1. On July 2, 2007, or as soon thereafter as possible, the State 6 Controller shall transfer $638,000 from the General Fund to the Water Manage- 7 ment Fund. On July 2, 2007, or as soon thereafter as possible, the State Con- 8 troller, with the cooperation of the Department of Water Resources, shall 9 transfer $211,936.99 from the Department's Miscellaneous Revenue Fund to the 10 Water Management Fund. It is legislative intent that the Idaho Water Resource 11 Board use the sum of such moneys for technical studies, facilitation services, 12 and interim measures as described in the Eastern Snake Comprehensive Manage- 13 ment Plan Framework.
|Statement of Purpose|
This is a trailer appropriation bill to HCR28. HCR28 recommends approval of funding to the Idaho Water Resource Board for technical studies, facilitation services and interim measures as described in the Eastern Snake River Plain Comprehensive Aquifer Management Plan Framework. Costs are estimated at $400,000 for facilitation services and $450,000 for seventeen interim measure studies.
This bill transfers $638,000 from the General Fund and $212,000 in dedicated funds for a total of $850,000 to the Water Board’s Water Management Fund to be used for the purposes stated in HCR28.
The source of the dedicated funds is the remainder of the $300,000 appropriated, in Section 11 of H843 of 2004, to develop and implement a long-term aquifer management plan. That $300,000 was transferred back from Water District 01 to the Department from encumbered moneys originally appropriated for aquifer recharge in 1995. The other $88,000 was expended for technical assistance to the Natural Resource Legislative Interim Committee in 2004. That appropriation has expired so that $212,000 remains.
The Water Management Fund is continuously appropriated to the Water Board pursuant to Section 42-1760, Idaho Code. Appropriations do not lapse. Interest accrues to the General Fund.
