Capital Development Committee. The bill creates the governor's mansion maintenance fund (fund), which is comprised of the money generated from the mansion's operation, such as rental fees. Subject to annual appropriation by the general assembly, the governor's office may expend money from the fund for any operating costs for any governor's mansion activities and the department of personnel may expend money from the fund for controlled maintenance of the governor's mansion, except that any appropriation for controlled maintenance is subject to the capital development committee's review. The bill also specifies that the department of personnel is still authorized to seek controlled maintenance funding for the mansion through the existing statutory request process if the money in the fund is insufficient to cover all controlled maintenance needs.
