SB1207 by Van de Putte (Relating to parking and the movement of vehicles in the Capitol complex.), As Engrossed
The bill would transfer from the State Preservation Board (SPB) to the Department of Public Safety (DPS) the authority to adopt rules for the safe movement and parking of vehicles in the Capitol complex, excluding parking areas under the charge and control of SPB. The bill would require free parking in a parking lot or garage within the Capitol complex to be provided for a state employee who works outside the Capitol complex and whose presence at the Capitol is requested by a member of the legislature or an elected official in the executive branch. The bill would require that any lease of a state-owned parking lot or garage in the Capitol complex provide free parking for a state employee whose presence at the Capitol is requested by a member of the legislature or an elected official in the executive branch. The bill would exclude application of these requirements to any parking lot or garage under the charge and control of SPB.
The bill would take effect immediately upon receiving a two-thirds majority vote in each house. Otherwise the bill would take effect September 1, 2013.
Based on the analyses of SPB, DPS, and the Facilities Commission, any costs associated with the bill could be absorbed within existing resources.
