STATE OF NEW HAMPSHIRE
In the Year of Our Lord Two Thousand Eighteen
Be it Enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives in General Court convened:
19-A:9 Art Fund.
I. There is hereby established a non-lapsing art fund consisting of 1/2 of one percent [of the first $15,000,000] of the bid contract price of each new building or major addition the total cost of which is in excess of $3,000,000, authorized by the capital budget to be paid from the general fund. As used in this section, "major addition'' means any addition which increases by 25 percent or more the square footage of the building to which it is being added. Contracts for the following projects are excluded:
(b) University system of New Hampshire;
(c) Those paid for by the highway fund, fish and game fund, or federal funds; and
(d) Self-liquidating projects.
II. The commissioner of administrative services shall pay the specified percent to the fund out of the original capital budget appropriation when the governor and council approve the construction contract. The percent shall be a charge against the bond or note financing the construction.
III. Pursuant to RSA 19-A:5, VII, the council on the arts shall use the amount deposited in the art fund under this section to fund art for the new building or major addition.
SB 467-FN-A- FISCAL NOTE
FISCAL IMPACT: [ X ] State [ ] County [ ] Local [ ] None
Estimated Increase / (Decrease)
[ ] General [ ] Education [ ] Highway [ X ] Other - State Art Fund
The Department of Natural and Cultural Resources indicates this bill, as introduced, would reduce the amount deposited in the State Art Fund. Instead of depositing ½ of one percent of the first $15 million of the contract price of a new building or major addition, the bill would apply the percentage only to those projects in excess of $3 million. A portion of the funds currently designated for the State Art Fund would remain in the capital appropriations. The Department indicates the amount deposited in the fund varies greatly from year to year depending on the projects included in the Capital Budget and when the contracts are approved. Therefore the decrease in revenue to the fund cannot be determined.
