  4    Be It Enacted by the Legislature of the State of Idaho:

Statement of Purpose / Fiscal Impact

                  STATEMENT OF PURPOSE

                        RS 17579

This legislation would repeal a section of the Higher 
Education Bond Act relating to a prerequisite for legislative 
approval prior to the acquisition or construction of a higher 
education facility which would subsequently require General 
Funds for maintenance and operations.  

This section of code is problematic in that higher 
education institutions must time their bonded capital projects 
around the legislative session in order to get prior legislative 
approval.  In addition, this section of code is limited in scope 
in that it only applies to bonded facilities.

In lieu of this current law, the higher education 
institutions have agreed to a notice requirement which would be 
broader in scope (all facilities regardless of fund source), yet 
provide flexibility in terms of when notice of intent to acquire 
or construct is to be provided to the Governor and the 
Legislature.  Rather than amending this section of code to 
codify these new notice requirements, it is the recommendation 
of the Joint Finance and Appropriations Committee that the 
requirements simply be incorporated into the committee’s 
occupancy costs policy.
