              (a) Transfers from a project may be made if the funds allocated to the project are in excess of the amount needed to complete the project, but transfers may only be made in the biennium in which the savings occur;

              (b) Transfers from a project may not be made as a result of the reduction of the scope of a project, nor shall a transfer be made to support increases in the scope of a project;

SENATE AMENDMENTS TO HOUSE BILL

March 11, 2004

Mr. Speaker:


             The Senate has passed ENGROSSED SECOND SUBSTITUTE HOUSE BILL NO. 2518, with the following amendment:


              Strike everything after the enacting clause and insert the following:


              "NEW SECTION. Sec. 1. A new section is added to chapter 82.16 RCW to read as follows:

              (1) For the purposes of this section:

              (a) "Chlor-alkali electrolytic processing business" means a person who is engaged in a business that uses more than ten average megawatts of electricity per month in a chlor-alkali electrolytic process to split the electrochemical bonds of sodium chloride and water to make chlorine and sodium hydroxide. A "chlor-alkali electrolytic processing business" does not include direct service industrial customers or their subsidiaries that contract for the purchase of power from the Bonneville power administration as of the effective date of this section.

              (b) "Sodium chlorate electrolytic processing business" means a person who is engaged in a business that uses more than ten average megawatts of electricity per month in a sodium chlorate electrolytic process to split the electrochemical bonds of sodium chloride and water to make sodium chlorate and hydrogen. A "sodium chlorate electrolytic processing business" does not include direct service industrial customers or their subsidiaries that contract for the purchase of power from the Bonneville power administration as of the effective date of this section.

              (2) Effective July 1, 2004, the tax levied under this chapter does not apply to sales of electricity made by a light and power business to a chlor-alkali electrolytic processing business or a sodium chlorate electrolytic processing business for the electrolytic process if the contract for sale of electricity to the business contains the following terms:

              (a) The electricity to be used in the electrolytic process is separately metered from the electricity used for general operations of the business;

              (b) The price charged for the electricity used in the electrolytic process will be reduced by an amount equal to the tax exemption available to the light and power business under this section; and

              (c) Disallowance of all or part of the exemption under this section is a breach of contract and the damages to be paid by the chlor-alkali electrolytic processing business or the sodium chlorate electrolytic processing business are the amount of the tax exemption disallowed.

              (3) The exemption provided for in this section does not apply to amounts received from the remarketing or resale of electricity originally obtained by contract for the electrolytic process.

              (4) In order to claim an exemption under this section, the chlor-alkali electrolytic processing business or the sodium chlorate electrolytic processing business must provide the light and power business with an exemption certificate in a form and manner prescribed by the department.

              (5)(a) This section does not apply to sales of electricity made after December 31, 2010.

              (b) This section expires June 30, 2011.


              NEW SECTION. Sec. 2. A new section is added to chapter 82.32 RCW to read as follows:

              (1) For the purposes of this section, "electrolytic processing business tax exemption" means the exemption and preferential tax rate under section 1 of this act.

              (2) The legislature finds that accountability and effectiveness are important aspects of setting tax policy. In order to make policy choices regarding the best use of limited state resources, the legislature needs information to evaluate whether the stated goals of legislation were achieved.

              (3) The goals of the electrolytic processing business tax exemption are:

              (a) To retain family wage jobs by enabling electrolytic processing businesses to maintain production of chlor-alkali and sodium chlorate at a level that will preserve at least seventy-five percent of the jobs that were on the payroll effective January 1, 2004; and

              (b) To allow the electrolytic processing industries to continue production in this state through 2011 so that the industries will be positioned to preserve and create new jobs when the anticipated reduction of energy costs occur.

              (4)(a) A person who receives the benefit of an electrolytic processing business tax exemption shall make an annual report to the department detailing employment, wages, and employer-provided health and retirement benefits per job at the manufacturing site. The report is due by March 31st following any year in which a tax exemption is claimed or used. The report shall not include names of employees. The report shall detail employment by the total number of full-time, part-time, and temporary positions. The report shall indicate the quantity of product produced at the plant during the time period covered by the report. The first report filed under this subsection shall include employment, wage, and benefit information for the twelve-month period immediately before first use of a tax exemption. Employment reports shall include data for actual levels of employment and identification of the number of jobs affected by any employment reductions that have been publicly announced at the time of the report. Information in a report under this section is not subject to the confidentiality provisions of RCW 82.32.330 and may be disclosed to the public upon request.

              (b) If a person fails to submit an annual report under (a) of this subsection by the due date of the report, the department shall declare the amount of taxes exempted for that year to be immediately due and payable. Public utility taxes payable under this subsection are subject to interest but not penalties, as provided under this chapter. This information is not subject to the confidentiality provisions of RCW 82.32.330 and may be disclosed to the public upon request.

              (5) By December 1, 2007, and by December 1, 2010, the fiscal committees of the house of representatives and the senate, in consultation with the department, shall report to the legislature on the effectiveness of the tax incentive under section 1 of this act. The report shall measure the effect of the incentive on job retention for Washington residents, and other factors as the committees select. The report shall also discuss expected trends or changes to electricity prices as they affect the industries that benefit from the incentives."


and the same is herewith transmitted.

              (a) A review of how current fire suppression practices comply with the policies and intent of chapter 76.04 RCW;

              (b) An examination of the factors that are contributing to the recent increase in the cost of fire suppression.

              (c) An examination of how the department of natural resources determines the proportion of fire suppression costs charged to private parties and the landowners contingency account; and

              (d) Any findings and recommendations from the state auditor's office related to fire suppression costs.

              A final report of the performance audit shall be provided to the appropriate fiscal and policy committees of the legislature by June 30, 2005.

The study shall include, but not necessarily be limited to, a survey of the types of gambling allowed by state, local, and tribal governments; the types of revenues from gambling, such as fees, taxation, and revenue sharing; and the distribution to state, local, and tribal governments of those revenues. The committee shall report the study findings to the appropriate policy and fiscal committees of the legislature no later than December 1, 2004.

              (4) $25,000 of the fiscal year 2005 general fund--state appropriation is provided solely for a study evaluating the state's current rules related to the licensing and testing requirements for heating, ventilation and air conditioning contractors and installers.

Prior to undertaking this review, the joint legislative audit and review committee and the state auditor's office shall develop a mutually acceptable work plan for conducting the review, detailing the roles and responsibilities of the two agencies and the topics to be covered in the review. The topics should include, but not be limited to: (a) Numbers of students served, variations in program types, and funding patterns for alternative learning experience programs, including digital curriculum and online courses; (b) the adequacy of current rules, regulations, and procedures to safeguard against the misuse of public resources based on any deficiencies identified in the state auditor's audit of alternative learning experience programs due to be completed in May 2004; (c) identification of policy and administrative options to address and correct such identified deficiencies; and (d) the potential fiscal impacts of any proposed options for changes to alternative learning experience programs.

The study shall examine bidding and purchasing methods and procedures used in other states and compare the results of those methods with the results of current and past methods employed by the office of the superintendent of public instruction, purchasing organizations, and school districts in this state. A preliminary report, including recommendations, shall be available by December 2004.

              (7) $150,000 of the general fund--state appropriation for fiscal year 2005 is provided solely to implement Third Engrossed Substitute House Bill No. 1053 (government accountability). If the bill is not enacted by June 30, 2004, the amount provided in this subsection shall lapse.

              Sec. 201. 2003 1st sp.s. c 25 s 201 (uncodified) is amended to read as follows:

              FOR THE DEPARTMENT OF SOCIAL AND HEALTH SERVICES. DEPARTMENT OF SOCIAL AND HEALTH SERVICES (1) Appropriations made in this act to the department of social and health services shall initially be allotted as required by this act. Subsequent allotment modifications shall not include transfers of moneys between sections of this act except as expressly provided in this act, nor shall allotment modifications permit moneys that are provided solely for a specified purpose to be used for other than that purpose.

              (2) The department of social and health services shall not initiate any services that require expenditure of state general fund moneys unless expressly authorized in this act or other law. The department may seek, receive, and spend, under RCW 43.79.260 through 43.79.282, federal moneys not anticipated in this act as long as the federal funding does not require expenditure of state moneys for the program in excess of amounts anticipated in this act. If the department receives unanticipated unrestricted federal moneys, those moneys shall be spent for services authorized in this act or in any other legislation providing appropriation authority, and an equal amount of appropriated state general fund moneys shall lapse. Upon the lapsing of any moneys under this subsection, the office of financial management shall notify the legislative fiscal committees. As used in this subsection, "unrestricted federal moneys" includes block grants and other funds that federal law does not require to be spent on specifically defined projects or matched on a formula basis by state funds.

              (3)(a) The appropriations to the department of social and health services in this act shall be expended for the programs and in the amounts specified in this act. However, after May 1, 2004, unless specifically prohibited by this act, the department may transfer general fund--state appropriations for fiscal year 2004 among programs after approval by the director of financial management. However, the department shall not transfer state moneys that are provided solely for a specified purpose except as expressly provided in subsection (3)(b) of this section.

              (b) To the extent that transfers under subsection (3)(a) of this section are insufficient to fund actual expenditures in excess of fiscal year 2004 caseload forecasts and utilization assumptions in the medical assistance, long-term care, foster care, adoption support, and child support programs, the department may transfer state moneys that are provided solely for a specified purpose after approval by the director of financial management.

              (c) The director of financial management shall notify the appropriate fiscal committees of the senate and house of representatives in writing prior to approving any allotment modifications or transfers under this subsection.

              (4) ((The department)) After consultation and coordination with local elected officials and community groups to assure there will be no degradation in existing services as a result of implementing the Washington medicaid integration project, the department shall report its progress to the appropriate committees of the legislature during the 2004 September committee assembly days and is authorized to develop an integrated health care program designed to slow the progression of illness and disability and better manage Medicaid expenditures for the aged and disabled population. Under this Washington medicaid integration partnership (WMIP) the department may combine and transfer such Medicaid funds appropriated under sections 204, 206, 208, and 209 of this act as may be necessary to finance a unified health care plan for the WMIP program enrollment.

$254,189,000


              The appropriations in this section are subject to the following conditions and limitations:

              (1) $18,000 of the general fund--state appropriation for fiscal year 2004, $18,000 of the general fund--state appropriation for fiscal year 2005, and $1,006,950 of the aquatic lands enhancement account appropriation are provided solely for the implementation of the Puget Sound work plan and agency action items DNR-01, DNR-02, and DNR-04.

              (2) $908,000 of the general fund--state appropriation for fiscal year 2004 and $910,000 of the general fund--state appropriation for fiscal year 2005 are provided solely for deposit into the agricultural college trust management account and are provided solely to manage approximately 70,700 acres of Washington State University's agricultural college trust lands.

              (3) (($1,158,000)) $24,674,000 of the general fund--state appropriation for fiscal year 2004, $8,358,000 of the general fund--state appropriation for fiscal year 2005, and $7,200,000 of the disaster response account--state appropriation are provided solely for emergency fire suppression. These funds shall not be allocated to cover any portion of agency indirect and administrative expenses. The legislature finds that general fund and disaster response account support for emergency fire suppression is a significant and direct subsidy of the costs to administer and manage various trust lands. It would be an unintended additional subsidy if a portion of the general fund and disaster response account amounts provided in this subsection were used to fund agency indirect and administrative expenses. To avoid this unintended additional subsidy, agency indirect and administrative costs shall be allocated among the agency's remaining accounts and appropriations.

              (4) $582,000 of the aquatic lands enhancement account appropriation is provided solely for spartina control.

              (5) Fees approved by the board of natural resources in the 2003-05 biennium are authorized to exceed the fiscal growth factor under RCW 43.135.055.

The report shall be submitted to the director of financial management and the legislative fiscal committees by August 31, 2003.

              (7) Authority to expend funding for acquisition of technology equipment and software associated with development of a new revenue management system is conditioned on compliance with section 902 of this act.

              (8) $1,000,000 of the aquatic lands enhancement account--state appropriation is provided solely for the department to meet its obligations with the U.S. environmental protection agency for the clean-up of Commencement Bay.

              (9) ((For the 2003-05 fiscal biennium, the department has revised the methodology by which administrative costs of the department are allocated among the state general fund and the various dedicated funds and accounts from which the department receives appropriations. The legislature recognizes that the revised methodology represents a fair and equitable allocation of costs under state law and accounting rules. The legislature further finds that retroactive application of the revised methodology is neither practical nor desirable.

              (10))) The department of natural resources shall provide a report to the appropriate committees of the legislature, the office of financial management, and the board of natural resources concerning the costs and effectiveness of the contract harvesting program as authorized by Second Substitute Senate Bill No. 5074 (contract harvesting), chapter 313, Laws of 2003. The report shall be submitted by December 31, 2006, and shall include the following information:

              (a) Number of sales conducted through contract harvesting;

              (b) For each sale conducted, the (i) number of board feet sold; (ii) stumpage and pond prices; (iii) difference in revenues received compared to revenues that would have accrued through noncontract harvest sales, and the distribution of revenues to the contract harvesting revolving account, and to applicable management and trust accounts; and (iv) total cost to conduct the contract harvest, by fund and object of expenditure; and

              (c) Other costs and benefits attributable to contract harvesting.

              (((11))) (10) $208,000 of the general fund--state appropriation of fiscal year 2004 and $70,000 of the general fund--state appropriation for fiscal year 2005 are provided solely to implement Second Substitute House Bill No. 1095 (small forest landowners), chapter 311, Laws of 2003.

              (((12))) (11) The department of natural resources shall not close Sahara Creek facility, campground, or trailhead. The appropriations in this section are deemed sufficient to provide service for these recreational opportunities.

              (((13))) (12) $4,000 of the general fund--state appropriation for fiscal year 2004 and $4,000 of the general fund--state appropriation for fiscal year 2005 are provided solely to compensate the forest board trust for a portion of the lease to the Crescent television improvement district consistent with RCW 79.12.055.

              (((14))) (13) $2,700,000 of the general fund--state appropriation for fiscal year 2004 is provided solely to the department of natural resources to acquire approximately 232 acres of land and timber in Klickitat county from the SDS lumber company. Expenditure of the moneys provided in this subsection shall not be made until the SDS lumber company accepts the land and timber acquisition as full and complete settlement of the current litigation brought by the SDS lumber company against the state and the litigation is dismissed, with prejudice. The land and timber acquired with the funding in this subsection shall be managed for the benefit of the common schools. By June 30, 2004, if the department has not recovered through trust asset management the state's capital investment from the land acquisition provided in this subsection, the department shall seek reimbursement from the federal government.

              (16) $200,000 of the general fund--state appropriation for fiscal year 2005 is provided solely for providing public access to camp sites and trails maintained by the department. This additional funding, along with existing funding from the off road vehicle account is intended to fully fund current access to camp sites and trails. If additional funding is required to avoid closures to camp sites and trails during the 2003-05 biennium, the department shall reduce expenditures for agency administration by five percent and redeploy those general fund resources to the recreation program prior to closing any camp sites or trails.

              (17) $40,000 of the aquatic lands enhancement account appropriation is provided solely for the department to (a) calculate the rent for DNR-leased marinas based on a percentage of a marina's income and (b) recommend an appropriate formula to the 2005 legislature.

              (18)(a) $2,000,000 of the general fund--state appropriation for fiscal year 2005, $750,000 of the state toxics control account--state appropriation, and $2,000,000 of the aquatic lands enhancement account--state appropriation are provided solely for the purpose of settling Pacific Sound Resources v. Burlington Northern Santa Fe Railroad, et al. In the event: (i) A final settlement agreement is not signed by the port of Seattle, Pacific Sound Resources, and the department of natural resources by March 25, 2004; or (ii) the U.S. environmental protection agency, or the department of justice if necessary, fail to settle with the state and the department and provide a covenant not to sue and contribution protection with no additional consideration required, then $550,000 of the general fund--state appropriation for fiscal year 2005 shall be available to use to fund the existing PSR litigation and the remainder of the amounts provided in this subsection (a) shall lapse.

              (b) $300,000 of the general fund--state appropriation for fiscal year 2004 is provided solely for legal defense costs in Pacific Sound Resources v. Burlington Northern Santa Fe Railroad et al.
