AN ACT relative to the heating of certain state-owned buildings in Concord and making an appropriation therefor.

 

Be it Enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives in General Court convened:

 

1  Appropriation; Department of Administrative Services; Replacement of Heating Systems in Certain State-Owned Buildings.  The sum of $2,016,343 is hereby appropriated to the department of administrative services for the fiscal year ending June 30, 2020, for the purpose of the purchase and replacement of all systems providing heat to state-owned facilities located in downtown Concord that were obtaining steam from Concord Steam corporation, including, but not limited to, system design, construction, hazardous material remediation, and project administration and management, as required.  The project shall be managed by the division of public works design and construction and funds may be expended to fund any temporary personnel for the purpose of project administration, management, or clerk of the works.  The governor is authorized to draw a warrant for said sum out of any money in the treasury not otherwise appropriated, and said funds shall not lapse until June 30, 2021.

2  Department of Administrative Services; Heating System Savings Account.  Amend RSA 21-I:19-ff to read as follows:

21-I:19-ff  State Heating System Savings Account.  There is hereby established the state heating system savings account for the transfer of unexpended state heating system appropriations due to reduced heating system costs resulting from the 26 state buildings served by the Concord Steam project authorized in 2017, 2.  Notwithstanding RSA 21-I:19-e, at the end of each state fiscal year, the commissioner of administrative services shall identify the unexpended appropriations in the accounts and class lines for the 26 state buildings served by the replacement of the Concord Steam facility.  The commissioner shall deposit such sums into the account established by this section.  Funds in the state heating system savings account shall be nonlapsing and appropriated to the department of administrative services for the biennium ending June 30, 2019, the biennium ending June 30, 2021, and the fiscal year ending [2020] June 30, 2022 and may be used to pay principal and interest on bonds and notes issued to fund the capital project for the heating of state facilities located at the Governor Hugh J.

METHODOLOGY:

This bill makes an appropriation of $2,016,343 to the Department of Administrative Services in Fiscal Year 2020 for the purchase and replacement of all systems providing heat to state-owned facilities located in downtown Concord that were obtaining steam from the former Concord Steam Corporation.  The appropriation shall not lapse until June 30, 2021.  The Department indicates the new appropriation will serve to complete the heating conversion project which began in 2017 and is identical to an amount that lapsed from a prior appropriation.

Gallen state office park and state-owned buildings in downtown Concord that were obtaining steam from the Concord Steam Corporation.  

 

The bill as amended includes a provision to extend the authority for the repayment of bonds and notes issued to fund the capital project from heating system cost savings from the State Heating System Savings Account.
