01:31 PM -- HB 17-1152



Representatives Willett and Mitsch Bush introduced House Bill 17-1152. The bill allows a federal mineral lease district (FML district) the option to invest up to 50 percent of the funding the district receives from distributions from the Department of Local Affairs (DOLA). Under current law, all distributions from DOLA to an FML district must be distributed to areas within the district that are socially or economically impacted by the development of minerals or oil and gas operations on federal land. The bill sets certain parameters that the board of an FML district must follow if it chooses to invest a portion of this funding. Representative Willett distributed amendment L.001 (Attachment A) and amendment L.002 (Attachment B).
