2007 House Bill 4850: Borrow to pay for current spending (Senate Roll Call 169)
facebook  twitter 

Passed 23 to 14 in the Senate on June 12, 2007, to borrow $415 million to avoid spending cuts in the Fiscal Year 2006-2007 state budget. The bill does this by increasing from $400 million to $815 million the borrowing authorized under the “21st Century Jobs Fund” business subsidy program. The first $400 million of that debt was loans with a duration of approximately 20 years. The House Fiscal Agency estimates the measure will incur annual debt service payments of $40 million to $46 million for the next 20 years.
