3  Assignment of Office Space.  If, during the biennium ending June 30, 2021, because of program reductions, consolidations, or any other reason, office space becomes available in the health and human services complex, the Hayes building, or any other state building, except office space under the control of the legislature pursuant to RSA 14:14-b, the commissioner of administrative services shall, with the prior approval of the fiscal committee of the general court, and with the approval of the governor and council, require that any agency renting private space be required to occupy such available space in said building or buildings forthwith.  Such funds as have been allocated or committed by any agency affected by this section for outside rental shall be transferred by the director of the division of accounting services to the bureau of general services, activity number 01-14-14-141510 for maintenance of applicable state buildings.
