Tues. March 26, 2002 Hint0n News - 3 Legislative By Delegate Mary R Compton The advances we made during this Legislative Session brought West Virginians closer to an improved economy, a safer environment and an enhanced education system. Sir Winston Churchill once said, "It is no use saying, "We are doing our best.' You have got to succeed in doing what is necessary? I believe that we, your lawmakers, strived to do this very thing. Did we succeed? Will you, the people of our state, benefit from our decisions? On Sunday, March 17th., the state budget was finalized with the passage of the Budget Bill, which can be downloaded on the Legislature's website, This year's budget was a challenge! I believe next year's budget will be an even greater challenge. Beginning with the many budget requests from state agencies until the differences between the House and Senate were ironed out, we were hard at'work. West Virginia is required to have a balanced budget each fiscal year. According to the State Constitution, the Legislature cannot pass and the Governor cannot sign a plan to spend more money than is projected to be available from taxes. This shields West Virginia from descending into debt. The budget balancing process is complex at best; however, it is key to a sound and responsible financial future One of the biggest financial hurdles we encountered related to economic development initiatives. Our largest economy legislation during this session, Committee Substitute forHouse Bill 4005, was broken down into iour main economic enhancement projects and infrastructure. The bonds will also pay for projects selected by a nine member committee, which will be comprised of the Governor (or a person designated by the Governor), the Secretary of Tax and Revenue, the West Virginia Development Office Director and six people appointed by the Governor. This legislation also provides for a sales tax increment financing plan to pay for development and redevelopment in a city chosen by the committee and approved by the Legislature. It will be interesting to see which cities are chosen for these projects. The legislation also repeals tax credits, two of which include the Business and Occupation Tax Credit for increased electricity generation and the Food Store Safety Act, creates tax credits, such as the Tax Credity for Manufacturing Investment and the Qualified Research and Development Tax Credity and extends many exemptions, including exemption from the Business Franchise Tax for persons and organizations who provide venture capital to the state's businesses and an additional exemption to Consumers Sales and Service Tax for purchases of personal property and services for use in research and development. We have also created the Downtown Redevelopment District "Act. This measure was mapped out to promote the health, safety, prosperity and general welfare of those citizens living in a municipality which is economically unstable This act may create a platform for development in areas which are in great need of an economic revival. committee and the Legislature. This legislation also created a special revenue account within the State Treasury designated the Downtown Redevelopment District FundP Money in the municipality's sub- account will be used to pay the bond debt or other various costs of restoration and promotion within the district. Lastly, House Bill 4005 includes language regarding West Virginia's Venture Capital, or money invested or made available for investment on enterprises that offer the possibility of profit and also risk. This legislation will allow the state to offer a loan of up to $25 million to the West Virginia Economic Development Authority (WVEDA) to promote economic stimulation. The WVEDA) will then offer loans to the West Virginia Enterprise Advancement Corporation (WVEAC). These loans must be invested in the West Virginia Enterprise Capital Fund, LLC to aid businesses and industrial development. As your legislator, I believe that we must follow very closely the expenditure of the funds created in House Bill 4005.
