|Statement of Purpose|
This legislation amends the fiscal year 2008 appropriation to the Idaho Department of Water Resources for the Energy Resources program for two purposes. First, it provides a fund shift to increase spending authority for grant monies received from the Northwest Energy Efficiency Alliance with an equal reduction in spending authority from other dedicated funds. Second, the legislation corrects a drafting error made last session regarding the effective date of the Biofuel Match appropriation and provides carryover of any unspent Biofuel Match funds from fiscal year 2008 into the Office of Energy Resources in the Governor’s Office instead of the Department of Water Resources.
This legislation increases the appropriation to the Department of Water Resources Miscellaneous Revenue Fund by $212,900 in ongoing spending authority and reduces the Petroleum Price Violation Fund by a like amount for a net change of zero dedicated funds. It also corrects a drafting error to allow the Rural Idaho Economic Development Biofuel Infrastructure Fund to be expended in FY 2008 with carryover of any unspent and unencumbered monies to the Office of Energy Resources in the Governors Office.
