METHODOLOGY:

This bill specifies the total amount of school building aid and alternative school building aid grants distributed by the Department of Education for FY 2018 and FY 2019.  In FY 2018, this bill requires the distribution to be equal to the amount that would have been distributed in FY 2017, if not for the moratorium on new projects pursuant to 2015, 276:141 (HB 2).  This is assumed to equal the actual amount appropriated to the Department for school building aid payments in FY 2017 as it is the state operating budget that determines the amount available for distribution, not the moratorium.  For FY 2019, this bill requires the distribution of $50,000,000 for school building aid.  Below is a table summarizing this bill’s impact in each FY 2018 and FY 2019:

 

FY 2018

FY 2019

Disbursement Amount Required by This Bill

$37,000,000

$50,000,000

Required Payments on Previously Approved Projects

($34,900,000)

($32,600,000)

Amount Available For New Projects

$2,100,000

$17,400,000

 

Considering school building aid appropriations for FY 2018 and FY 2019 have not yet been determined, and since FY 2012 only the required payments on previously approved projects has been included in the budget, this bill would increase general fund expenditures and local revenues by $2,100,000 in FY 2018 and $17,400,000 in FY 2019.
