Creates New Fund: Department of Agriculture Capital Improvements Fund

Fiscal Note Summary

Effect this measure will have on costs and revenues of state government.

This bill establishes a dedicated Special Revenue fund allowing the Department of Agriculture to utilize existing resources for construction and other capital improvements to agency facilities. This does not create new revenue; instead, it grants the Commissioner of Agriculture the ability to direct revenue generated from agency-owned farm operations to meet critical needs. The benefit of utilizing existing resources via this new fund for capital improvements is reduced reliance on one-time special-purpose General Revenue appropriations for agency improvements.
