02:56 PM -- HB17-1296



Senator Jahn, co-prime sponsor, presented House Bill 17-1296 to the committee. This reengrossed bill, as initially recommended by the Legislative Audit Committee, clarifies the criteria and requirements for the assignment of state-owned vehicles to state agencies and employees. Under this bill, the assignment of a vehicle to a state agency is only authorized when the agency's use of the vehicle is likely to meet the minimum required mileage for the vehicle's intended work, or if the agency can justify the need for a permanent assignment of a vehicle for a unique use. The bill specifies that an officer or employee of an agency must pay income tax on the value of the fringe benefit of an assigned vehicle. The authorization of a vehicle assignment must be submitted in writing to the Division of Central Services in DPA by the executive director of an agency or their designee. The director of the division must establish a program and adopt rules to annually verify that the assignment of all state-owned vehicles comply with state and federal law. On or before September 1, 2019, the DPA is required to report to the Legislative Audit Committee on the implementation and enforcement of this bill.
