BY EDUCATION COMMITTEE
1 AN ACT
2 RELATING TO HIGHER EDUCATION FACILITIES; AMENDING TITLE 57, IDAHO CODE, BY THE
3 ADDITION OF A NEW CHAPTER 10, TITLE 57, IDAHO CODE, TO PROVIDE A SHORT
4 TITLE, TO PROVIDE LEGISLATIVE INTENT, TO PROVIDE FOR THE CREATION AND
5 OPERATION OF THE HIGHER EDUCATION FACILITIES MATCHING FUND, TO REQUIRE
6 CERTAIN MATCHING FUNDS BE RAISED FROM NONSTATE SOURCES, TO PROVIDE FOR THE
7 APPROPRIATION AND USE OF THE FUND AND TO PROVIDE FOR RULEMAKING AUTHORITY;
8 PROVIDING SEVERABILITY; AND DECLARING AN EMERGENCY.
9 Be It Enacted by the Legislature of the State of Idaho:
10 SECTION 1. That Title 57, Idaho Code, be, and the same is hereby amended
11 by the addition thereto of a NEW CHAPTER, to be known and designated as Chap-
12 ter 10, Title 57, Idaho Code, and to read as follows:
13 CHAPTER 10
14 HIGHER EDUCATION FACILITIES MATCHING FUND
15 57-1001. SHORT TITLE. This act shall be known and cited as the "Higher
16 Education Facilities Matching Fund Act."
17 57-1002. LEGISLATIVE INTENT. The legislature recognizes that public
18 higher education institutions require facilities that are appropriate to meet
19 the needs of students, faculty and staff. Often, in addition to state funding
20 sources, it is possible for public higher education institutions to obtain
21 funds for facilities from additional sources, such as private individuals,
22 businesses, foundations and other nonstate, public funding sources. As a
23 result, the legislature finds and declares that the interests of the public
24 can often be served by encouraging funding partnerships between the state and
25 other funding sources for the construction and renovation of public higher
26 education facilities.
27 57-1003. HIGHER EDUCATION FACILITIES MATCHING FUND. There is hereby cre-
28 ated in the state treasury a fund to be known as the higher education facili-
29 ties matching fund. Moneys in the fund shall be comprised of appropriations,
30 donations, contributions, gifts or grants from any source for purposes consis-
31 tent with the provisions of this chapter. The state treasurer shall invest
32 idle moneys in the fund, and the interest earned on such investments shall be
33 retained in the fund.
34 57-1004. MATCHING FUNDS REQUIRED. Prior to the transfer of any moneys
35 from the higher education facilities matching fund to individual projects, the
36 sponsoring institution shall provide appropriate certification that an amount
37 equivalent to fifty percent (50%) of the total cost of the project has been
38 raised from other nonstate sources and has been deposited in the financial
39 accounts of the institution to be applied to the costs of the project.
1 57-1005. APPROPRIATION OF FUND -- USE. (1) All unencumbered and otherwise
2 unappropriated moneys now or hereafter placed in the fund are hereby perpetu-
3 ally appropriated to the permanent building fund advisory council and the
4 division of public works subject to the provisions of this chapter and chapter
5 57, title 67, Idaho Code.
6 (2) All moneys deposited into the fund shall be dedicated for the purpose
7 of building needed structures, renovations and remodeling of existing struc-
8 tures at Idaho's public institutions of higher education.
9 57-1006. RULES. Rules governing the use of moneys deposited into the
10 higher education facilities matching fund shall be promulgated by the perma-
11 nent building fund advisory council, as created in section 67-5710, Idaho
12 Code, in consultation with the state board of education and the board of
13 regents of the university of Idaho, including rules establishing a means for
14 institutions to apply for moneys from the fund and rules governing priorities
15 for use of fund moneys.
16 SECTION 2. SEVERABILITY. The provisions of this act are hereby declared
17 to be severable and if any provision of this act or the application of such
18 provision to any person or circumstance is declared invalid for any reason,
19 such declaration shall not affect the validity of the remaining portions of
20 this act.
21 SECTION 3. An emergency existing therefor, which emergency is hereby
22 declared to exist, this act shall be in full force and effect on and after its
23 passage and approval.
STATEMENT OF PURPOSE
The purpose of this legislation is to promote private giving for
construction of higher education facilities in Idaho by
providing for matching funds from the legislature.
The bill contemplates no adverse fiscal impact in that there is
no requirement for legislative appropriation. When the
legislature is able to appropriate funds, the overall fiscal
impact is positive in that it will result in any state
appropriated funds being leveraged 100% by private donations for
use in constructing higher education facilities in Idaho.
