The act modifies the requirement that the office of legislative legal services have suitable office space in the capitol building by allowing the office space for the office of legislative legal services to be in the state capitol complex and within one-quarter mile of the state capitol building.
The act requires the general assembly to provide funding for annual depreciation-lease equivalent payments for appropriations from the revenue loss restoration cash fund in the capital construction section of the annual general appropriation act. In addition, for the 2023-24 fiscal year through the 2028-29 fiscal year, the state controller is required to transfer the money for all annual depreciation-lease equivalent payments for the applicable fiscal year on July 1 rather than on June 30.
On July 1, 2023, and each July 1 thereafter through July 1, 2028, the state treasurer is required to transfer to the capitol complex renovation fund the amount transferred to the capitol complex master plan implementation fund that was not required for the financing of the development of the national western center in the applicable fiscal year.
The act repeals the specific designation of 2 floors in the capitol building annex at 1375 Sherman street as legislative space and requires the executive committee of the legislative council, the director of the division of capital assets, the secretary of the senate, the chief clerk of the house of representatives, the director of the office of legislative legal services, the director of research of the legislative council, and the state auditor to determine, prior to the beginning of the 2025 legislative session and with the approval of the executive committee of the legislative council and the governor, which areas in the capitol building annex are legislative space. The general assembly is required to vacate the legislative space at the state office building at 1525 Sherman street within one year after the completion of the renovation of the capitol building annex at 1375 Sherman street and thereafter, such space in the office building at 1525 Sherman street will be executive space.
For the 2023-24 state fiscal year, the act appropriates $20,479,729 to the department of personnel from the capitol complex renovation fund for capital construction related to specific capitol complex renovation projects.
