Version: CS HB 298 FIN Contact: Paulyn Swanson, 465-4949 Action: 04-28-04: Passed the House
HB 298 is effective only if a Percent of Market Value (POMV) constitutional amendment is approved by the voters during the 2004 general election and takes effect. HB 298 provides conforming language to existing statute to accommodate changing the constitutional requirement that all income of the Permanent Fund be deposited into the general fund to the more limiting appropriation mechanism of "up to 5%" of market value in the proposed POMV constitutional amendment and to recognize the merger of the Earnings Reserve Fund into the Permanent Fund. Amended to exempt section 1, 2 and 5 from sections 10 and 11.
