Resolution #2012-3 Treasure State Endowment Program

Several bills were introduced in the 2011 Legislature to suspend, rollback or otherwise weaken the Treasure State Endowment Program that has been used by cities and towns for more than 20 years to help finance water and sewer projects.  Most of these attempts were stymied, and most recommended projects were approved for funding.

Recommendation:  In 2013, cities will oppose all efforts to reduce funding for the Treasure State Endowment Program and any other state grant and loan programs that provide financing for local capital improvement projects.
