AN ACT Relating to implementing the capital facilities elements of comprehensive plans adopted under the growth management act; amending RCW 36.70A.103, 82.45.060, and 43.84.092; adding a new section to chapter 36.70A RCW; and creating a new section.
BE IT ENACTED BY THE LEGISLATURE OF THE STATE OF WASHINGTON:
NEW SECTION. Sec. 1. The legislature finds that population growth in many areas of the state requires new, improved, or additional capital facilities. The legislature further finds that the needed facilities identified in the capital facilities elements of comprehensive plans adopted by counties and cities far exceed the existing funding available to county, city, or state agencies responsible for constructing or operating the needed facilities. The legislature therefore establishes the growth management infrastructure account to assist counties and cities in financing and constructing those capital facilities identified in the capital facilities elements of growth management plans. In addition, where successful implementation of locally adopted growth management plans requires improvements or additions to state facilities identified in a growth management plan, the legislature finds that the responsible state agency should request those funds at the next regular session of the legislature.
Sec. 2. RCW 36.70A.103 and 1991 sp.s. c 32 s 4 are each amended to read as follows:
(1) State agencies shall comply with the local comprehensive plans and development regulations and amendments thereto adopted pursuant to this chapter.
(2) Whenever a comprehensive plan adopted by a county or city under this act indicates that improvements or additions to state facilities are needed to implement the plan, at the next regular session of the legislature the state agency responsible for constructing or operating those facilities shall request that the legislature recommend to the public works board that the facility be funded from the growth management infrastructure account.
NEW SECTION. Sec. 3. A new section is added to chapter 36.70A RCW to read as follows:
A growth management infrastructure account is created in the state treasury. The purpose of the account is to fund capital facilities identified in comprehensive plans adopted and implemented under the growth management act, primarily capital facilities to be constructed by counties and cities, but including improvements or additions to state facilities identified by counties or cities. Expenditures from the account shall be made only after appropriation. Only the public works board may authorize expenditures from the account. Money may be placed in the account from the proceeds of bonds when authorized by the legislature, transfers from other state funds or accounts, federal capitalization grants or other financial assistance, all repayments of moneys borrowed from the account, all interest payments made by borrowers from the account or otherwise earned on the account, or any other lawful source.
Sec. 4. RCW 82.45.060 and 1987 c 472 s 14 are each amended to read as follows:
There is imposed an excise tax upon each sale of real property at the rate of
one and twenty-eight one-hundredths percent of the selling price. From the
proceeds of this excise tax to the state treasurer, an amount equal to
seven and seven-tenths percent (( of the proceeds of this tax to the state
treasurer)) shall be deposited in the public works assistance account
created in RCW 43.155.050 and an amount equal to fifty percent shall be
deposited in the growth management infrastructure account created in section 3
of this act.
There is imposed an additional excise tax through June 30, 1989, upon each sale
of real property at the rate of six one-hundredths of one percent of the
selling price. The tax imposed under this subsection shall be deposited in the
conservation area account under RCW 79.71.110.))
