METHODOLOGY:

This bill makes a capital appropriation of $3.5 million to the Department of Administrative Services for the biennium ending June 30, 2019 for the purpose of constructing a new Tenth Circuit District Court Facility in Hampton.  The bill authorizes the State Treasurer to issue general obligation bonds pursuant to RSA 6-A with principal and interest payments made from the State general fund.   The Treasury assumes the total appropriation would be spent during the biennium ending June 30, 2019 and included in the bond issue in FY 2018.  The Treasury further assumes:

  • $3.5 million would be bonded in FY 2018 with a fixed rate of 5% amortized over 20 years.
  • Debt services payments would be structured to accommodate the first principle payment in the spring of the year following the debt issuance.
  • The State typically repays 60% of the bond principal in the first 10 years and 40% during the remaining 10 years.
  • The Treasurer indicates this bond authorization would not materially impact the State's key debt ratios, but it must be considered in the context of all other FY2018-19 capital project bond authorizations included in the State Capital Budget.

Based on these assumptions, the debt service payments would $87,500 in FY 2018, $379,750 in FY 2019, $369,250 in FY 2020, and $358,750 in FY 2021.
