In response to your request for a Fiscal Note on HB3368 ( Relating 
to the acquisition of real property by the General Services 
Commission as an alternative to leasing space.) this office 
has detemined the following:
         Biennial Net Impact to General Revenue Funds by HB3368-As Introduced

No cost to the State is anticipated.  
The bill would authorize the construction of state facilities 
as an alternative to leasing space, which could result in significant 
savings to the state.

The bill would allow the General Services Commission to consider 
facility construction as an alternative to leasing space as 
part of the commission's facility evaluation process.  The commission 
would be authorized to acquire and construct space other than 
office space such as laboratories and warehouses. 
No significant fiscal implication to units of local government 
is anticipated.
