HB13-1280Target Reserve Req Waiver For Building Reg Fund GEROU / HODGE Joint Budget Committee. By law, the uncommitted reserves of a cash fund that includes fees set by a state agency may not exceed a target reserve that is equal to 16.5% of the amount expended from the cash fund during the fiscal year. If they do, the state agency is required to adjust the fees as necessary to ensure that the amount of the uncommitted reserves in the cash fund remain at or below the target reserve. Alternatively, a state agency may submit a request for a waiver from the target reserve limitation to the joint budget committee, and the joint budget committee may recommend legislation to grant the request. The bill grants a waiver of the target reserve requirement for the building regulation fund for all uncommitted reserves for the 2012-13 and 2013-14 fiscal years. 06/05/2013 Governor Action - Signed

SB13-237General Fund Reserve Increase STEADMAN / GEROU Joint Budget Committee. Under current law, 4% of the amount appropriated for expenditure from the general fund in a fiscal year must be retained in the fund at the end of the fiscal year as a reserve. But once a personal income trigger occurs, which means that personal income grows by 5% from one calendar year to the next, the amount of the required general fund reserve increases by a one-half percent in each of the following 5 fiscal years. The bill changes the general fund reserve requirement by:
* Increasing the reserve to 5% of general fund appropriations for the fiscal years 2012-13 and 2013-14;
* Establishing the reserve as 5% of general fund appropriations for all subsequent years until the percentage increases after the personal income trigger occurs;
* Eliminating the first 2 fiscal years of reserve increases, because the reserve will already be 5% of general fund appropriations; and
* Delaying the remaining 3 fiscal years of one-half percent reserve increases until the third fiscal year that begins after the personal income trigger occurs so that the timing of these increases does not change from existing law.
