HB 4029 - WORK SESSION

 

119

John Britton

LFO.  Submits Staff Measure Summary, Fiscal Impact Statement, and the HB 4029-1 amendments (EXHIBIT C).  Explains that HB 4029 is necessary to reduce adult dental benefits for the new eligibles or non-categorical eligibles in the Oregon Health Plan.  A bill was passed during the last special session and it has been modified to clean up some unintended things.  The HB 4029-1 amendment is language received from Oregon Medical Assistance Program (OMAP) and been agreed to by Rep. Hayden.  

 

151

Jim Bunn

Northwest Dental Services.  States that the bill as amended would do virtually and exactly what was the intent in SB 1008 passed last special session.  States they can live with the bill.  It is a cut but protects the most vulnerable under the OHP. 

 

160

Chair Westlund

Comments he has a great deal of concern for the issue Bunn raises and appreciates the efforts of Bunn, staff and Rep. Hayden. 

 

163

Rep. Morgan

Comments that one draft previously discussed listed the co-payment amounts.  Asks if Britton can tell the committee if they need to discuss that on the record.

 

167

Britton

Responds that HB 4029 does not include the list of co-payments.  States that as a courtesy to Rep. Hayden, he agreed we would enter into the record a portion of LC 26 (EXHIBIT D).  States that the portion of LC 26 is not an amendment but does lay out the co-payments and the intent of HB 4029. 

 

177

Rep. Schrader

Asks if it will be included in the budget narrative.

 

 

Britton

Responds that the information can be included in the Staff Measure Summary.  Explains that the portion of LC 26 is a listing of all the dental co-payments that mirrors what is going on under the proposed OHP2 waiver.

 

185

Rep. Morgan

Asks that the record clearly reflect that it is the intent of the committee that these should be the level of co-pays that go along with the language of the bill.

 

188

Chair Westlund

Comments that the co-pays are the same reflected in the bill in the first special session.

 

188

Britton

Comments that Chair Westlund is correct. 

 

195

MOTION:  Moves to ADOPT HB 4029-1 amendments dated 2/25/02.

Chair Westlund

Noting objection by Rep. Lee, declares the motion CARRIED.

REP. HAYDEN will lead discussion on the floor.

 

 

210

Chair Westlund

Opens a public hearing on HB 4030.

 

HB 4030 - PUBLIC HEARING

 

213

Chair Westlund

Determines there is no one wishing to testify on HB 4030.  Closes the public hearing on HB 4030 and opens a work session on HB 4030.

 

HB 4030 - WORK SESSION

 

220

Larry Niswender

Explains HB 4030 is identical to the bill passed during session relating to a one-time transfer of $14 million from the Emergency Communication account and sub-accounts to help the statewide budget rebalance plan.

 

227

Rep. Morgan

MOTION:  Moves HB 4030 to the floor with a DO PASS recommendation.

 

211

Rep. Schrader

Asks if there has been potential legal issues raised regarding using the entire reserve.

 

 

Chair Westlund

Asks Hasina Squire to speak to the potential for legal issues.

 

221

Hasina Squires

Special Districts Association of Oregon.  States that the issue revolves around the possibility of someone challenging the fact that the 9-1-1 tax is levied on those people that have telephones capable of accessing 9-1-1.  It is a line item on the phone bill that indicates it will go to fund 9-1-1 programs.  Believes there is a concern that someone from the utilities may have issues about collecting a tax and sending it through the state for an intended purpose and it then being diverted to the State General Fund.  Adds that she does not know about any pending legal challenges, she only knows about the conversations that have been had about the issue coming up in other states. 

 

270

Rep. Schrader

Comments he had an opportunity to visit the 9-1-1 center in Clackamas County.  In the initial discussions it seemed that we were just putting off consolidation to try to get down to one 9-1-1 facility and that it was his understanding that is what most of the reserve money was dedicated to.  A separate issue that has been brought up is that the federal government has indicated there are some requirements that all 9-1-1 facilities are supposed to have the advanced video capability.  The Clackamas 9-1-1 center is very concerned about getting it into place so they do not have a legal issue with the federal government.  Asks if Squires has heard anything about the concern.

 

287

Squires.

Responds that HB 4030 takes $7 million from the consolidation incentive fund.  That money was set aside for the next session to determine how to spend that.  The other $7 million is coming from the enhanced 9-1-1 sub-account.  The advanced video capability is a federal mandate by the Federal Communications Commission that primary public safety answering points be able to locate wireless cellular telephones, and is called Phase II Wireless Enhanced 9-1-1.  That is what the money has been set aside for. 

 

307

Rep. Schrader

Asks if there is a timeline.

 

 

Squires

Responds the FCC original timeline was set for October 1, 2001.  The wireless utilities petitioned the FCC asking for time.  They expect that technology to be completed in six to twelve months in Oregon.  One pilot project has been run in Benton County and in the second or third quarter of this year, Josephine, Jackson, and Douglas will have the technology available. 

 

293

Acting Chair Morgan

States that the committee has a motion before it.

 

329

Rep. Schrader

States he will object to the motion to raise the issue to let people know what is going on but may vote for passage on the floor.

 

332

 

VOTE:  4-1-0

OBJECTION:  1 - Schrader

HB 4035 - PUBLIC HEARING

 

366

Chair Westlund

Determines no one wishes to testify on HB 4035.  Closes the public hearing and opens a work session on HB 4035.

 

 

HB 4035 - WORK SESSION

368

Larry Niswender

LFO.  Explains HB 4035 is identical to the omnibus program change bill that was passed in the first special session.  HB 4035 redirects various transactions to increase the amount of General Fund available for statewide budget rebalance: 

·         Redirects one-half the proceeds from the sale of the Boardman property to the General Fund, about $3.7 million.

·         Reduces lottery allocation to the County Fair Account by approximately $40,000.

·         Authorizes the use of the Worker's Benefit Fund for civil rights claims in lieu of General Fund for about $500,000.

·         Reduces the maximum amount transferred to the Oregon Rural Health Association from $15 million to $7.5 million.

·         Transfers $1 million from the Law Enforcement Medical Liability account, and $2.5 million from the JOBS individual education account to the Department of Human Services to offset General Fund.

·         Eliminates $200,000 General Fund support to the Board of Education; it is now budgeted in the Governor's office.

·         Eliminates $218,000 General Fund support for the post secondary Opportunity Commission.

·         Repeals a special purpose appropriation for a centralized voter registration system.

·         Includes a technical fix for the Department of Human Services so it can distribute $1.1 million for a workers' compensation self-insurance pool.

·         Allows a $3 million transfer from the Housing and Community Services Housing Finance Fund to the Emergency Housing Assistance account.

·         Allows Washington County to utilize more of its rail project funds to leverage available federal grant funds.

416

Chair Westlund

Determines no one wishes to testify on HB 4036.  Closes the public hearing and opens a work session on HB 4036.

 

HB 4036 - WORK SESSION

 

417

Steve Meyers

Legislative Revenue Office.  Explains HB 4036 is a repeat of the measure in the first special session.  It allows school districts to use their School Improvement Fund moneys for any purpose related to education instead of for the mandates in the School Improvement Act.  It also repeals the section that would require the funds in the 2001-03 and 2003-05 biennia to be used to improve third and fifth grade reading and math scores.  The School Improvement Fund would still exist.  Adds that these are temporary changes for the use of those funds by the school districts.

Rep. Shetterly

MOTION:  Moves HB 4036 to the floor with a DO PASS recommendation.

HJR 75 - PUBLIC HEARING

 

038

Chair Westlund

Determines no one wishes to testify on HJR 75.  Closes the public hearing and opens a work session on HJR 75.

 

HJR 75 - WORK SESSION

 

039

Paul Warner

Legislative Revenue Office.  Distributes impact statement (EXHIBIT E) and explains that the measure would go on the May 2002 ballot.  It requires rescinding SJR 50 that was passed in the first special session.  It revises the Oregon Constitution and converts the Education Endowment Fund into the Education Stability Fund.  It dedicates 15 percent of lottery earnings to the fund.   Lottery earnings in this biennium will be about $106 million from the 15 percent dedication.  The Stability Fund becomes operational on April 30, 2003.  On May 1, 2003, there is a transfer of $200 million from the fund to the State School Fund.  Legislative Revenue Office estimates that following the $200 million transfer and the $106 million dedication going in this biennium, that the fund balance on July 1, 2003 would be about $78 million.

 

069

Rep. Lee

Comments she is concerned about the $200 million and that can be discussed further on the floor.  Adds that she is willing to move this through the committee.

 

075

Rep. Shetterly

Acknowledges a bar chart that he requested and has been passed out by Warner that assumes passage of HJR 75 by this Assembly and the voters (EXHIBIT F).  Explains that the chart shows the transfer of $200 million from the Stability Fund in this biennium and carries out what we could expect to see over the next ten years.  It starts at about a $78 million balance.  The blue represent the figures with earnings reinvested into the Stability Fund at 7.33 percent, which is the blended earnings in the Common School Fund over the next five years.  This fund is capable of being invested in equities as the Common School Fund is.  States that he asked Warner to project the growth with the 7.33 percent with all earnings reinvested.  The yellow bars represent the growth of the fund if only the lottery payments and no earnings are reinvested.  There is a spread of just over $900 million in 10 years on the high side to just over $600 million on the shy side.  Believes this represents substantial growth anticipating the timing for the next recession will follow historic trends and will be in about 2010.

 

104

Rep. Shetterly

States that HJR 75 is substantially the same as SJR 50 except it is in the form of a revision, not an amendment, and will require 40 votes on the floor.

 

108

Rep. Schrader

Comments he has some reservation about the total amount of money that is being used, but wants to move the measure forward.  States that the investment language is critical to the better utilization of the fund.  Asks if they have been able to do this all along, why have they not done so, and asks if statutory clarification is needed to make sure this is followed in the future.

 

 

Rep. Schrader

Comments that the Endowment Fund has not been invested in equities, at least not to the degree of the Common School Fund.  Wants to make sure there is language to allow investments in equities, an appropriate and prudent amount, and gain some benefit.  Asks why it has not been done and whether it would be better to give direction that it can be done.

 

143

Kate Richardson

Oregon State Treasury.  Comments she cannot comment on the historic decisions about investment policies.  Believes because the Oregon Growth Account (OGA) is part of the Education Endowment Fund, there is a weighing going on and the fund has been building over time.  Currently the bulk of the fund is setting in a short-term fund.

 

159

Rep. Schrader

Comments he will be voting for the measure but the issue needs to be addressed, perhaps on the Senate side.  Is not comfortable that the department is getting enough direction to feel comfortable in doing this.  It has not been done for the last six to eight years since the fund has been in existence.  Believes the direction should be included in the measure.  It is an opportunity that does not hurt anything.

 

 

Richardson

Suggests it might be helpful for the committee to have someone from Investments talk about the decisions and explain why where it is.

 

175

Rep. Shetterly

Comments there has not been much money in the fund until this biennium.  States he is assured by Treasury and Legislative Counsel that the language is entirely sufficient to authorize investment in equities.  States he would not want language in the Constitution that directs investments in equity.

 

191

Rep. Schrader

States that the legality of rescinding SJR 50 has come into question and would like some clarification on the legislature's ability to do that.

 

195

Rep. Shetterly

Responds there is precedent for the legislature rescinding a measure. It is on the strength that if the legislature has the authority to send out a resolution to the ballot, then before the resolution makes it to the ballot, the same legislature has the authority to rescind the resolution.  Adds that Legislative Counsel has pointed out the precedent and the fact they think it is inherent in the powers of the legislature to send out and rescind resolutions. 

 

208

Rep. Schrader

Asks what the mechanism is for the legislature to get it back. 

 

210

Rep. Shetterly

States that he will refer Rep. Schrader to Legislative Counsel for an explanation of the precedent, and that the mechanism is in paragraph one of HJR 75 which simply declares that SJR 50 from the first special session is rescinded.

 

223

Rep. Lee

Asks what the projected balance would be on July 1, 2003 based on the withdrawal and the projected earnings if the fund were depleted by $200 million.

 

229

Warner

Responds they have updated the estimate.  SJR 50 was based on the December revenue forecast.  The increase in lottery resources, a big portion of which was use of the contingency fund of the Lottery, about $20 million, is captured in the March revenue forecast.  It is reflected in the graph and adds about $6 million to the projection for a revenue dedicated to the fund.  They are estimating about $78 million on July 1, 2003, given a $200 million withdrawal on May 1.

 

249

Rep. Lee

Comments there is currently about a $112 million deficit in school funds and if it goes to $312 million in the next biennium we won't be able to address it from this fund again with that kind of a deficit.

 

246

Warner

Responds Rep. Lee is correct.  Explains that the chart (EXHIBIT F) assumes no more would be withdrawn from the fund. 

 

254

Rep. Schrader

Comments that with the transfer, whatever the amount is, of the Educational Endowment Fund to the State School Fund, the current service level rollup for the State School Fund would not be adversely affected by using this money as opposed to General Fund money.  Asks if his comment is correct.

 

261

Warner

Responds that the $200 million would replace current General Fund money that is going into the State School Fund.  Adds that the State School Fund under the budget bill passed in the first special session was not affected.  The reason was the transfer of money from the Stability Fund to the State School Fund, and as they would project out the current service, they would project out the higher State School Fund level. 

 

281

Cindy Hunt

Legislative Counsel.  Comments that the legislature has rescinded measures three times before (in the 60's and 70's).  There was never a challenge in court.  States they have an opinion from their office from the 60's and 70's that reasoned the legislature could do this and it was based on sound, legal reasoning.  States that if the committee wishes to have the opinion in front of them, Legislative Counsel can prepare it.

 

308

Rep. Schrader

Asks if paragraph one of HJR 75 is enough to stop the Secretary of State from putting it on the ballot.

 

311

Hunt

States that in two of the three times, a measure was rescinded.  The third instance was repeal.  Adds that if HJR 75 does not pass the legislature, SJR 50 is on the ballot in May.  As soon as this measure passes the legislature, SJR 50 is off the ballot even if the people do not pass this measure.

 

324

Rep. Shetterly

Asks if the committee needs to do anything with the companion election bill from the first special session. 

 

328

Hunt

Responds that the committee has passed a bill to the floor that repeals that special elections bill. 

 

341

Rep. Shetterly

MOTION:  Moves HJR 75 be sent to the floor with a BE ADOPTED recommendation.

HB 4028 - WORK SESSION

 

340

Susie Jordan

LFO.  Explains that a conceptual amendment to HB 4028 in Section 3 refers to repealing HB 4013 from the first special session.  States that because HB 4013 has not been signed into law, they want to change the language to say if HB 4013 becomes law, then sections one and two are repealed. 

 

405

Rep. Shetterly

MOTION:  Moves to AMEND HB 4028 on page 2, in line 8, before "Sections" insert "If Enrolled House Bill 4013 (2002 Fist Special Session) becomes law,".

 

424

Rep. Shetterly

Acknowledges receipt of the HB 4028-1 amendments (EXHIBIT G) and withdraws his motion.

HB 5081 - WORK SESSION

 

463

Robin LaMonte

LFO.  Submits the HB 5081-1 amendment (EXHIBIT H) and explains that the amendments are the changes that would be made to the lottery bill passed last special session.  It increases the amount that is being transferred to the State School Fund by approximately $1.5 million, there would be an offsetting decrease in General Fund to the State School Fund and reflects the change in the Revenue Forecast.

 

482

Rep. Shetterly

MOTION:  Moves to ADOPT HB 4028-1 amendments dated 2/25/02.
