(1) Sections 216.015-216.016 may be cited as the “Capital Facilities Planning and Budgeting Act.”
(2) The Legislature finds that there is a need to establish a comprehensive capital facilities planning and budgeting process that is fully integrated with the state financial planning and debt management activities and that incorporates the long-range plans of all state agencies and the judicial branch and major public benefit corporations to ensure that projects with the greatest potential for improving the prosperity and well-being of the people of the state receive their proper allocation of limited resources. It is, therefore, the intent of the Legislature in enacting this legislation that a comprehensive capital facilities planning and budgeting process be established and maintained to enable the state to better meet the demands for new and properly maintained infrastructure in a fiscally responsible manner.
(3) The comprehensive capital facilities planning and budgeting process requires integration and coordination by all government agencies and by the judicial branch. The process includes:
(a) An inventory of current facilities owned, leased, rented, or otherwise occupied by any agency of the state or the judicial branch;
(b) An assessment of current population, economic, social, physical, and environmental trends and conditions that relate to public facilities;
(c) A determination of future demographic conditions deemed most appropriate and likely for this state and of a set of goals and objectives;
(d) A determination of unmet needs by comparing existing facilities to goals and objectives;
(e) A strategic matching of funding options and facility needs to ensure the most effective development strategy; and
(f) A management structure that maintains, operates, repairs, renovates, and replaces capital facilities to obtain the maximum value for each public dollar spent.
(4) In order to carry out this act, the Executive Office of the Governor is designated as the agency responsible for the coordination, development, direction, monitoring, and evaluation of the comprehensive capital facilities planning and budgeting process, including the plans revised pursuant to that process. The Executive Office of the Governor shall publish an annual report of the progress being made by the state toward meeting the state goals and objectives of the plans.
(5) All agencies of government and the judicial branch are directed to extend maximum cooperation and assistance in the furtherance of this program.
