House bill 1013

Officially known as:

Land department budget

Unofficially known as:

Energy impact bill

house bill 1013
House Bill 1013

Changes the name of the office from Energy Development Impact Office to:

Energy Infrastructure and Impact Office (EIIO)

Increases funding to the oil impact grant program from $8 million per biennium to $100 million per biennium.

EIIO Director: No longer award grants; will now make recommendations

Board of University and School Lands: The Land Board will now award grants; they may also create an advisory committee to assist in awarding grants

What it Does

2011 oil impact grant round

2011 Grant Requests

  • $62.5 million worth of grant requests
  • 422 requests from 314 entities
  • Approximately $3.9 million available for grants

Will be handled much as it has been for the past few years and will focus on:

  • Township Roads
  • Emergency Services
  • Small Cities

Entities that receive little or no funding through the gross production tax distribution formula

  • Most entities that receive GPT distributions have seen large increases during the current bi.
  • Can’t fix million dollar problems, but can help fix many $10,000 & $20,000 problems

Only change is Land Board will now make grants

2011Oil Impact Grant Round

Before we implement the changes included in House Bill 1013, we need to finish up with the oil impact grant funding for the 2009-11 biennium.

MORE MONEY

$100 MILLION FOR 2011-13 BIENNIUM

An increase of $92 million over the current biennium

Impacts are growing fast, funding needs to grow too

This is in addition to the $142 million of funding provided to DOT for county and township roads (HB 1012)

ALLOCATION OF FUNDS

$5 million for schools with rapid enrollment growth (SB2050)

$350,000-Upper Great Plains Transportation Institute (SB2325)

35% of money available to Williston, Dickinson and Minot - no more than 60% to any one city

65% of money available to other cities, counties, school districts, and other political subdivisions

No more than 60% of total can be awarded during a fiscal year
