Bill Text

PAG LIN
  1  1    Section 1.  Section 161A.73, subsection 2, paragraph b,
  1  2 Code 1997, is amended to read as follows:
  1  3    b.  The allocation of cost-share moneys as financial
  1  4 incentives to encourage summer construction of permanent soil
  1  5 and water conservation practices.  The practices must be
  1  6 constructed on or after June 1 but not later than August
  1  7 September 15.  The commissioners may also provide for the
  1  8 payment of moneys on a prorated basis to compensate persons
  1  9 for the production loss on an area disturbed by construction,
  1 10 according to rules which shall be adopted by the division.
  1 11 The commissioners shall not allocate cost-share moneys to
  1 12 support summer construction during a fiscal year in which
  1 13 applications for cost-share moneys required to establish
  1 14 permanent soil and water conservation practices, other than
  1 15 established by summer construction, equal the total amount
  1 16 available to support the nonsummer construction practices.
  1 17 The financial incentives shall not exceed sixty percent of the
  1 18 estimated cost of establishing the practice as determined by
  1 19 the commissioners, or sixty percent of the actual cost of
  1 20 establishing the practice, whichever is less.  
  1 21                           EXPLANATION
  1 22    This bill amends a provision in Code chapter 161A which
  1 23 provides for the administration of soil and water conservation
  1 24 practices by district commissioners.  Code section 161A.73
  1 25 provides that the commissioners of a district may establish
  1 26 voluntary financial incentive programs that provide for the
  1 27 allocation of cost-share moneys to encourage summer
  1 28 construction of permanent soil and water conservation
  1 29 practices.  The Code section provides that the practices must
  1 30 be constructed on or after June 1, but not later than August
  1 31 15.  This bill extends the deadline to September 15.
