Current law states that for every appropriation in the capital
construction section of the annual general appropriation act, the general
assembly is required to provide funding for annual depreciation-lease
equivalent payments. Currently, the annual depreciation-lease equivalent
payments are credited to the fund that was the source of the original

capital construction appropriation. For the 2021-22 fiscal year through the
2028-29 fiscal year, section 1 of the bill requires the annual
depreciation-lease equivalent payments to be credited to the capitol
complex renovation fund. Section 1 also requires each state agency that
terminates a lease for private space to calculate the annual reduction in its
costs for leased space. For specified fiscal years, the general assembly is
required to transfer an amount equal to each state agency's annual
reduction in lease costs to the capital construction fund.
Section 2 creates the capitol complex renovation fund (fund) and
specifies that the money in the fund is appropriated to the department of
personnel for certain capital construction needs for existing state-owned
buildings in the capitol complex. Section 2 also requires money in the
fund to be set aside for use by the legislative department for
improvements to legislative spaces in the capitol complex. In addition,
section 2 requires the department of personnel to submit a quarterly
report to the capital development committee regarding the status of the
capitol complex renovations funded with money in the fund.
Section 3 requires that any unexpended and unencumbered money
appropriated to a department in a specific line item for utilities in a fiscal
year remains available for expenditure in the next fiscal year without
further appropriation for the department to purchase utilities conservation
equipment or services.
Current law specifies that the legislative department has control of
and is responsible for supervising the maintenance of legislative spaces
in certain buildings in the capitol complex and the grounds adjacent to the
capitol building. Section 4 includes 2 floors of the capitol building annex
at 1375 Sherman street in the spaces over which the general assembly has
control and is responsible for the supervision of maintenance.
