    REGULAR AGENDA

    23. STATE TREASURER’S OFFICE
      Request for authorization to issue tax anticipation notes for Fiscal Year 2001 in an amount not to exceed $1,309,740.00.00 prior to June 30, 2001, as necessary and pursuant to the provisions of Chapter 32 of Title 63, of the Idaho Code.
      State Controller: Governor, item #23 on the Regular Agenda, today we have The Honorable Ron Crane, the Treasurer of the State who is here to make a presentation regarding tax anticipation notes.

      Governor: Treasurer, would you like to join us?

      State Treasurer: Thank you Mr. Chairman and members of the Board (State Treasurer’s comments were inaudible) Our bond counsel, Mr. Moore, is here.

      Mike Moore: Governor, and members of the Board. I think if I could give you the letter and resolution and perhaps I should explain the resolution authorizes borrowing up to, not to exceed $1,309 billion and as Treasurer Crane explained the state won’t need to borrow that much but this authorizes us to go to that extent because that is what the law permits. I will circulate copies of the resolution.

      Governor: Mike, let me ask you a question. Tell me why we approve the $1.3 million when it is expected that you would need $300 million?

      Mike Moore: Governor Kempthorne, the statute permits the state to borrow up to 75% of the anticipated revenues. We routinely ask for the authority to do that. The actual sizing of the issue depends on the anticipated maximum deficit the state would appraise if we didn’t borrow during the year. We would not borrow more than that for a number of reasons, but most of all because it could affect the tax exemption on the notes. We don’t know at this time what that number would be so we ask for the full authority.

      Governor: Any other questions of the Treasurer or Mr. Moore? If not, the Board of Examiners would have it before you for your action.

      Attorney General: I would move the approval.

      Secretary of State: Second.

      Governor: It has been moved and seconded. Discussion? If not, those in favor please say aye.


      Aye: Governor
          Secretary of State
          Attorney General

      Opposed, nay. The ayes have it, so carried.

      Mr. Treasurer, thank you very much.

      State Controller: Do you need these signed now?

      Mike Moore: Could I get three copies signed? One of your records, one for the Treasurer and one for us.
