NO FISCAL IMPACT

TITLE: CONCERNING RECOMMENDATIONS OF THE SENATE JUDICIARY COMMITTEE RELATED TO THE CONTINUATION OF REQUIREMENTS FOR CERTAIN REPORTS TO THE GENERAL ASSEMBLY FROM EXECUTIVE AGENCIES PURSUANT TO THE STATUTORY THREE-YEAR REPORTING REVIEW REQUIREMENT.
Summary of Assessment
This bill repeals the requirement for the Department of Corrections to submit a proposed facility program plan for each new, expanded, renovated, or improved correctional facility to the Capital Development Committee before any appropriation can be made by the General Assembly for that facility.
The bill also repeals the authority for the General Assembly to contract with a consultant to provide assistance to the Capital Development Committee (CDC) and the Joint Budget Committee (JBC) in the review of those plans. The bill will become effective 90 days after adjournment unless a referendum petition is filed.
The Department of Corrections develops facility program plans to assist the department's executive staff in evaluating facility requirements. The department will continue to develop and utilize facility program plans for all major projects regardless of whether they are required by statute.
The CDC and JBC do not have a consultant under contract, nor have they utilized consulting services to review facility program plans in the recent past.
The repeal of these statutory provisions will not affect state or local government revenue or expenditures. Therefore, this bill is assessed as having no fiscal impact.
