10:03 AM -- SB16-215



Representative Young, sponsor, presented Senate Bill 16-215 to the committee. The bill modifies the implementation of the state's twice monthly payroll system authorized through House Bill 15-1392. The bill allows the State Personnel Director within the Department of Personnel and Administration (DPA) to determine when to begin paying salaries twice a month, if it is determined that it is necessary to delay until after July 1, 2017, due to the implementation of the Human Resources Information System (HRIS). Additionally, the bill eliminates one of the options an employee may use to repay a one-time loan authorized through HB 15-1392.

The maximum repayment cost cannot exceed $5.5 billion or take longer than 20 years to repay. TRANs proceeds must be spent on a list of transportation projects described in the bill. The bill also eliminates the final three years of Senate Bill 09-228 transfers and diverts 5 percent of state sales tax revenue to the Highway Users Tax Fund (HUTF) and 1 percent of state sales tax revenue to the Capital Construction Fund (CCF).
