Ten-Year Plan and Expenditures
1997-2007 Ten-Year Plan and
The following section presents
three tables that describe the 1997-2007 capital plan. The first
table, the Ten-Year Capital Plan Project Listing, displays each
agency's recommended capital plan by project and fund source.
Table 2 displays the 1997-99 capital program by source of funds,
and Table 3 shows the 1997-2007 Ten-Year Plan by appropriation
Assumptions used in the development
of the ten-year plan include the following:
- The recommended capital
plan complies with the 7 percent statutory debt limitation.
- In the last two biennia
of the capital plan, part of the available appropriation level
is not allocated to specific agencies or projects at this time.
These amounts are shown under the Office of Financial Management's
capital program, and will be allocated to projects in later budget
cycles. This reserve is maintained to cover cost increases for
currently identified projects, new initiatives and programs that
cannot be determined at this time, and new or changing circumstances,
including emergencies and natural disasters.
- Project and program descriptions
become less specific in the last two biennia to allow agencies
flexibility when developing project details at a later time.
- Preservation of existing
facilities will remain a priority. The capability to define specific
projects in future biennia is limited, and aggregate amounts for
this purpose are often shown as various future projects.
The 1997-2007 Capital Plan is a plan, not
a budget. The projects proposed for the 1997-99 funding have
been carefully reviewed in the context of operating budget decisions
and the accuracy of cost estimates. The potential projects listed
for subsequent biennia have been reviewed for consistency with
today's programmatic issues and reasonableness of cost. Any project
identified beyond 1997-99 should not be interpreted as a specific
commitment to include that project in a future budget, but rather
as an indication that, given the information available today,
the state plans to move forward with this project list in the
