STATE OF NEW HAMPSHIRE
In the Year of Our Lord Two Thousand Seventeen
Be it Enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives in General Court convened:
I.

This bill increases the bonded indebtedness supported by the general fund by $12,000,000.
This bill as amended appropriates $13 million to the Department of Administrative Services (DAS) for fiscal year 2017 for the purpose of purchase and replacement of all systems within the 25 state owned buildings that currently obtain heat from Concord Steam Corporation and for decommissioning the steam facility. This appropriation is funded with any money in the Treasury not otherwise appropriated and will not lapse until June 30, 2019. The amendment also directs the Commissioner of DAS to request an additional $12 million in capital appropriations to be included in the State Capital Budget (HB 25) of the 2017 legislative session for the same purposes.
The DAS assumes the legislation will be effective immediately for the $13 million appropriation, which will come from current surplus funds and has no associated borrowing cost. The DAS also assumes that the work will be completed by spring of 2019. The DAS assumes the State will begin to take advantage of utility cost savings beginning in FY 2020. These savings are estimated at $2,315,220 for each year FY 2020 and FY 2021.
The Treasury and DAS assume the $12 million capital appropriation will be spent during FY 2018 and included in the bond issue of FY 18; a fixed coupon of 5% will be used; and amortization over 20 years, with the debt service payments structured to require the first principal payment in the spring of the year following the debt issuance. The State generally repays 60% of the principal in the first 10 years and 40% during the remaining 10 years.
An estimated debt retirement schedule for all outstanding direct general obligation bonded indebtedness, including the proposed $12 million authorization contained in this bill as amended through FY 2021 is displayed below:
Fiscal Existing Additional Total Year Debt Obligation Debt Obligation Debt Obligation 2018 $87,970 $300 $88,270
2019 $86,675 $1,302 $87,977
2020 $82,545 $1,266 $83,811
2021 $70,385 $1,230 $71,615
