[Originating in the Committee on Education]


(March 9, 2009)



Requesting the Joint Committee on Government and Finance to make a study on potential alternative methods for assisting county boards to meet the facility needs of their school systems through the use of public/private lease-purchase agreements or other repayment rental arrangements with the Authority.

Whereas, The facility needs of county school systems exceed the funds available through the School Building Authority to meet them, often requiring county boards of education to seek funding through local bonding for construction and renovations and to supplement funding through the Authority; and

Whereas, For various reasons, it is difficult for some county boards to secure passage of bond levies sufficient to
support needed facility improvements, thereby diminishing the health, safety and educational benefits for the students derived from adequate modern facilities; and
Whereas, Potential alternative methods for assisting county boards to meet the facility needs of their system may exist through the use of lease-purchase agreements or other repayment rental arrangements with the Authority; therefore, be it

Resolved by the Legislature of West Virginia:

That the Joint Committee on Government and Finance is hereby requested to make a study on potential alternative methods for assisting county boards to meet the facility needs of their school systems through the use of public/private lease-purchase agreements or other repayment rental arrangements with the Authority; and be it

Further Resolved, That the Joint Committee on Government and Finance is requested to report to the regular session of the Legislature, 2010, on its findings, conclusions and recommendations, together with drafts of any legislation necessary to effectuate its recommendations; and be it

Further Resolved, That the expenses necessary to conduct this study, to prepare a report and draft necessary legislation are requested to be paid from legislative appropriations to the Joint Committee on Government and Finance.
