H.B. 10-1020: Legislative Department Contracts
Current law also treats the legislative department as equivalent to agencies of the executive branch of state government under statutes restricting the leasing of real and personal property for purposes of oversight of executive branch spending by the state controller.
The act provides that, except for certain types of contracts required under the state constitution to be approved by the governor or his or her designee, legislative department contracts shall be approved by the director of the office of legislative legal services or the director's designee. The act exempts the legislative department from the statutory provisions restricting the leasing of real and personal property for purposes of oversight of executive branch spending by the state controller. The act also reduces the general fund appropriation to the legislative department for legal services for the 2010-11 fiscal year by $1,131 and 15 hours. The act specifies that it applies to contracts of the legislative department entered into on or after April 15, 2010.
APPROVED by Governor April 15, 2010 EFFECTIVE April 15, 2010
