07:48 AM -- Colorado State University Cash-Funded Requests
The meeting was called to order. A quorum was present. Representative Riesberg announced changes to the day's agenda and announced that the committee will not meet Tuesday, January 20 as originally planned. Mr. Rich Schweigert, Chief Financial Officer, Colorado State University (CSU) System, and Mr. Brian Chase, Director of Facilities Management, CSU, presented two cash-funded FY 2009-10 requests including: 1) Biology Building; and 2) Eddy Hall (Capital Renewal Project). Committee members received a summary of each request, prepared by Legislative Council Staff (Attachments A and B, respectively). Mr. Chase distributed a campus map showing the proposed location of the two new buildings (Attachment C). Representative Riesberg expressed his reservations about the source of cash funds for the requested projects. Mr. Schweigert said that unless the students approve an increase in the student facility fee the projects will not go forward. Discussion ensued about the approval process for an increase in the student facility fee. Mr. Chase said that student-elected representatives will determine the outcome of a student facility fee increase.
Representative Riesberg explained that the committee will meet later this month to consider possible changes to the approval process for cash-funded projects. He said that CSU will be invited to provide input about this. Mr. Schweigert addressed a question about whether it is necessary to have the requested projects approved by the legislature prior to seeking student approval for an increase in the student facility fee. Discussion continued about the student fee increase.
Representative Gagliardi joined the committee at the table.
